Black-billed Cuckoo

I absolutely do not believe I got this bird! I was walking on the Old Rockport Road and heard a hallow cu cu cu call. And there he was! It looks like there is a lot of light, but shooting this was extremely tricky because the amount of backlight on the bird and the New England hardwood forest can drop the light levels down.
