Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large, pale-brown, ground-dwelling cuckoo with rusty wings and back. Skulks in bushes and low cover, where it moves clumsily as it searches for small invertebrates, small mammals, and birds to prey on. Like other coucals, it is a cuckoo that builds its own nest. Common throughout its range in gardens, groves, disturbed forests, paddyfields, etc. The song is a series of deep and resonant “hoop” notes.
