Mangrove Cuckoo is a locally common resident of mangroves along the north and south-east coasts of Cuba. They differ from Yellow-billed Cuckoo in being orange-buff rather than white on the belly and under-tail coverts. They also lack any yellow on the upper mandible. This is another great picture from Karlos Ross, the bird guide at Holguin. Thank you Karlos.
And here is a picture of Yellow-billed Cuckoo for comparison from when we there in June last year.
