Asian Koel

Eudynamys scolopaceus

Largish bird with a long tail. Ruby eyes and a glossy blue-black plumage in the sun (looks jet black otherwise)

Habitat:

My rooftop terrace...bribed with fruits. Since I cannot go out looking for them...they must come to me.

Notes:

Brood parasite. the female looks very different. You can see the pair here: https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/15...
