Mangrove Cuckoo range

The Mangrove Cuckoo, as the name suggests, lives in the mangrove forest. They can be seen in the most southern areas of Florida and on the Caribbean islands. This shy bird is very difficult to seek out. One might be more apt to hear it calling than actually see it. Its population numbers are declining because of coastline developments throughout all of its territories.
