Gray bird with curved beak

Two of these birds started showing up at birdbath during our prolonged heat spell. Almost as big as a robin, very distinctive markings where white breast and throat meet grey. Yellow on bill and rufus colored wings visible only when wings are spread.

Unfortunately I found one of these birds dead at the bottom of a sliding glass door this morning and I had NO idea what he was. I was so upset that I had to spend hours trying to find out what he was. I have been hearing him for weeks and weeks but could not spot him .... just devastated to not only learn what kind of bird he is but that I no longer will hear him. It has been weeks that I have tried to find out what kind of bird he was and enjoyed the mystery...very saddened that he collided with the glass door. He's very pretty and somewhat unique to my area; Chesapeake Bay in VA.

Thanks for the prompt answer. Yellow Billed Cuckoo it is. Also known as a rain-crow.
