Critical Habitat Proposed for Yellow-Billed Cuckoo

Jul 08, 2015
No critical habitat units are included in Oregon or Washington.

The USFWS proposed listing the western yellow-billed cuckoo in late 2013, and currently includes it on the species lists for a number of counties in Oregon and Washington based on historical range as well as recent sightings.  However, the lack of breeding records from the last 90 years and the infrequent nature of sitings suggest that the western yellow-billed cuckoo is an occasional migrant in Oregon and Washington. 

For more information, see the federal register at: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2014-08-15/pdf/2014-19178.pdf and the USFWS species page at: http://ecos.fws.gov/speciesProfile/profile/speciesProfile?spcode=B06R#status.
