Shining Bronze-cuckoo

Chrysococcyx lucidus


Hard to spot and easier to hear, the shining bronze cuckoo has metallic golden or coppery green upperparts and white cheeks and underparts barred with dark green. The female is similar with a more purplish sheen to the crown and nape and bronzer-tinged barring on the belly. The bill is black and the feet are black with yellow undersides


Spotted on pine tree in backyard amongst rainforest trees.

One of the banes of my existence. Sits on the power line outside our house and calls all day long all summer long. Good thing I don't shoot native wildlife (just feral rabbits).
