Take a look at this nice adult male Magnolia Warbler. It is probably a great grandpa of more than 4-5 years old with the solid black upper tail coverts and the large white spots on its tail.
The best field mark for the Yellow-billed Cuckoo when it is in flight is the contrast of the rufous wings and gray body. The tail spots are not the easiest to see nor is the bill color. The Black-billed Cuckoo has gray wings on a gray body. Yes, there is a slight reddish to the Black-billed wings but not enough to see in flight.
There is still time to enjoy the sights and sounds of spring bird migration! Migration is NOT over! Get out and have fun!
