Absolutely terrible photo

May I ask what tells you this?

Ah, I didn't see the second photo. Oversight on my part. I assumed that the apparent white below was an artifact of the photo. A cuckoo seems right. While the underside tail pattern seems unremarkable (thus, suggesting BBCU), I wouldn't trust it.

I almost forgot Black-billeds existed, because they’re so secretive! ?

I was so surprised yesterday when I heard one, then did some imitations, gave up, then heard a weird clicking growl, turned around, and there it was!  First cuckoo I’ve ever seen. I don’t know how they hide so well

Wow! Your first cuckoo was a Black-billed?!? That’s nuts!
