It's Cuckoo Time

Shining Bronze Cuckoo

Fledgling Fan Tailed Cuckoo with its adopted Scrubwren parent

Horsfeld's Bronze Cuckoo

Fan Tailed Cuckoo

Pallid Cuckoo

The cuckoos have been busy lately and seem to be everywhere at Cranbourne Botanic. In the space of 2 hours I came across 4 different species including a juvenile being fed by its adopted parent. The Shining Bronze Cuckoo is a particularly attractive bird, not unlike Horsfeld's Bronze Cuckoo but much more green on the wings.
