Greater Coucal- Taking a walk on the parapet

A common visitor in and around my garden.

The shy and a bit clumsy bird is large and crow-like with a long tail and coppery brown wings. They forage for insects among the ground vegetations as well as tree canopies.

Also called Crow pheasant (Centropus sinensis), these are lovely birds with their characteristic ‘calls’
