Plaintive Cuckoo

Cacomantis merulinus


Greyish head, mantle, and chest. Yellowish belly and streaky tails.


Actually this bird is hard to find because it tends to hide in thick tree canopy. But this individual was found on the floor. When it was approached, it jumps to the bushes indicating that it might be injured or something.
