Yellow Billed Cuckoo References

The following is a listing of the references to assist natural resource managers, researchers, policy makers, and interested members of the public in finding information about the Yellow-billed Cuckoo. Effective conservation and management of any species requires access to the best available information. This bibliography includes references related to the Yellow-billed Cuckoo, containing a broad mix of articles from peer-reviewed journals, government agency surveys and reports, and non-government agency and consulting firm documents. We are not a repository for these documents, and so can not provide them if requested. Documents should be sought from their original sources (e.g., author, agency, library, or publisher).

This bibliography was developed by the Arizona Game & Fish Department and the U.S. Geological Survey's Sonoran Desert Field Station at the University of Arizona and the Colorado Plateau Field Station at Northern Arizona University.  Funding was provided by the US Geological Survey State Partnerships and NBII programs. We hope that this bibliography serves as a valuable research tool for future management and conservation of the Yellow-billed Cuckoo in the Southwestern United States and Mexico.
