Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Like a miniature version of the more common Squirrel Cuckoo, it is mostly rufous with a yellow bill, red eye, and gray belly. Much smaller and relatively shorter-tailed than Squirrel Cuckoo. Uncommon but widespread in lowlands and foothills, preferring thick understory at forest edges, often near water. Usually skulky and difficult to see. Listen for a nasal “enk!” and ascending rattle.
