This is the Klaas's Cuckoo (female). These pics came out better than I thought, considering it was far away at the max range of my lens!

@WelshPixie Very similar to some of the cuckoos we get here in Australia. Same colouring anyway.

@dadegroot Cool! There's another similar one here called the Diderick cuckoo too.

@WelshPixie Here's the Horsefield's Bronze Cuckoo. Crap photo I'm afraid, but he wouldn't come down any lower. You can just see the greenish iridescence on the wing.


@WelshPixie Whereas, our Fan-tailed Cuckoo isn't shiny at all.
