Cuckoo, Thick-billed

Unread post by 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
