Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Distinctive, boldly patterned cuckoo. Typically restless, making short flights often, and hops on the ground with tail raised. Juveniles are even more contrasting than adults with a rusty wing panel and black crest. A nest parasite of magpies and other crow relatives (corvids). Found in semiarid open woodland and dry savannas. Noisy, often giving "krree krree krree" calls.
