Shining cuckoo

Chrysococcyx lucidus


Lovely little bird, Shimery blue feathers on its back and spotty cross, white and brown feathers on its belly.


This bird flew into our window and so we are looking after it so it can live.

Nice story! I am very happy you took good care of the birdie and that he could retrun to the wild after he was better :-)

Its doing well now, We kept it in over night. It was getting fairly frustrated trying to get out, so I put my hand in this morning and it eventually sat still on my finger. I then took it out of the cage and took it outside. It looked at me and away and then back at me, then away. Then it flew away to the East as fast as it could.
