  1. Chris Clarke  Lovely shot. Might the eye ring and white edges on tail ring lead towards the fan-tailed cuckoo? I'll check with some birdos. Cheers

  3. Peter Bire  Thanks Chris, sure is a fan-tailed cuckoo. Actually has a very distinctive 'advertising call' that cuts through the bush so you know if one is around.
