Least or Black-billed? July 1, 2006

That night when I got home I can finally listen to my birdsong c.d. Yep, the call definitely sounded like a Black-billed Cuckoo. After doing some searching through my bird guides, I find out that Cuckoos can sound like Least Bitterns. Least Bittern! Now I’m really getting excited! What if it is a Least Bittern? I’ll be able to do another “rare bird report”, Least Bitterns can occur here but they are not seen very often and may even be considered “accidental” ( they are more common in southern MN).
