Mangrove Cuckoo

There are four types of cuckoos seen in Cuba. The Great Lizard-Cuckoo with the most attrative and magnificent tail, is the most common of the cuckoos and is seen throughout the island. The Mangrove Cuckoo is seen in the northern regions and is also a common cuckoo.

The Yellow-billed Cuckoo and the Black-billed Cuckoo are easily seen during the migration period.

The cuckoos' main diet is a variety of caterpillars. These birds never really settle into one region but are more likely to be seen and nest wherever there is an abundant supply of caterpillars to live on.
