Channel-Billed Cuckoo

Scythrops novaehollandiae


Nearly twice the size of a Kookaburra. The pair kind of checking the tree, and did not pay any notice of the noisy miners and magpies that trying to chase them away. Spotted at 06:30hrs.

6:30am might be a bit too early... those eyes indicate a rough night
