The yellow-billed cuckoo is insectivorous and lives in riparian woodlands. While the yellow-billed cuckoo is common east of the Continental Divide, biologists estimate that more than 90 percent of the bird's riparian habitat in the West has been lost or degraded. Threats tothe~stern~': ~' 'distinct population segment include loss of riparian habitat and habitat fragmentation as a result of conversion to agriculture, dams and river flow management, bank protection, overgrazing and competition from exotic plants.
