The other cuckoos in Florida are the less common Black-billed Cuckoo, a spring and fall migrant, the secretive Mangrove Cuckoo, a rare species and resident of south-central and south Florida mangrove habitats, the uncommon Smooth-billed Ani, a resident of central and south Florida, and the Groove-billed Ani, a rare fall and winter visitor.
