Cuckoo, Thick-billed

Unread postby wildtuinman » Tue Jan 29, 2013 9:26 am

We had a brief flyby sighting on this very special bird last week.

It didn't stop for any good photo ops, but nevertheless I managed this shot to prove the sighting.


The Retz's Helmet-Shrike plays host to this species and it was at quite a sizable flock of shrikes that we saw it fly over. :D
Latest Lifer(s): Buff-spotted Flufftail, Tree Pipit, Dimorphic Egret, Lesser Jacana, Citrine Wagtail, Black-tailed Godwit
