While vacationing in Cayo Coco, Tamara and I decided to take a bird-watching walk on the road heading southeast from the Pullman resort. We ended up on an abandoned sideroad heading northeast towards the ocean. It looked like the edges of the road were now a dumping ground for building materials. This cuckoo was perched on a tree branch near some rubble. It was patiently hunting down a lizard. Eventually, it disappeared in the rubble. It seems pretty likely it had lunch that day.
