9) Yellow-billed Cuckoo

The Yellow-billed Cuckoo is an unusual bird in that it feeds almost exclusively on tent caterpillars. It has a long curved bill that makes it especially adept for reaching in and pulling out tent caterpillar larvae. Some people call them rain crows probably because they will call just before a summer rainstorm.
