Black-billed Cuckoo

I observed this Black-billed Cuckoo feasting on tent caterpillars in Du Page County, Illinois. He stayed about an hour and ate nearly all of the caterpillars and totally destroyed the tent!! Another photographer before me said that the cuckoo had to fight off two other cuckoos to get his prize! This photo was taken in late May.
