The spotted beauty

Asian koel – female

I am talking about the Asian koel female, a spotted beauty. They are shy and timid, often hiding among the foliage of the trees. Though male koels are around, I have rarely seen them as a pair…separately maintaining their space!

Unlike males that are good singers with high pitch sound, females have a jarring call.

These beauties frequent my backyard trees and trees around my house, in search of berries and shelter.

Here are some pictures of Asian koel (Eudynamys scolopaceus)  female.
