It's hard to see much detail in the photo, but possibly a thickbilled cuckoo? Here's hoping someone more knowledgable than I weighs in here :pray:

Saw this Jacobin Cuckoo in the Kruger last year November.

Did You Know? :hmz:
According to Indian mythology it has a beak atop its head and it thirsts for the rains.
