Western Yellow-Billed Cuckoo (Coccyzus americanus occidentalis): 2015 Yellow-Billed Cuckoo Surveys on Queen and Arnett Creeks
In 2015 Audubon Arizona organized and conducted standardized surveys on three reaches of Queen and Arnett Creeks near Superior, Arizona, in order to document yellow-billed cuckoo occurrence and abundance and to provide a basis for management recommendations. No cuckoos were detected on any of the three Arnett or Queen Creek transects during the 2015 survey season. Forty-four other species were encountered during the 2015 survey season, including Abert's towhee which is listed as "Sensitive" by the USFS and as a "Species of Greatest Conservation Concern" by AGFD.
