Looks like a young Diderick Cuckoo, waiting for his mini parents to feed him!

Thanks all!

He must have been a very small version or his parents weren't feeding him too well! He also flew away and was not waiting to be fed! :wink: :wink:

Believe me, his parents weren't feeding him AT ALL! They're rather bad parents that way.

Dec. 2008, Lower Sabie: The trees near the swimming pool were full of weaver nests. The cuckoos seemd to be really attracted by the nests. The weavers were not amused at all and tried to chase the cuckoos away!

Amazing, Mountainview!!! 8) But might it not have been that the cuckoo was raised by the weavers and waited too long before leaving the nest…thus were too big to get out? :?

This Diderick Cuckoo, with its Southern Masked-Weaver mom, were regular visitors to our Joburg garden this summer…I took this photo the last time I saw them (03 April). The Weaver fed the never-ending moaning cuckoo seed from the birdfeeder. :lol:
