Friends in My Garden- 3

Black is Beautiful!

Asian koel- Male

Black and handsome….that is Asian koel male!

This legendary singer appears shy and timid like his female counterpart, mostly hiding in the foliage. He is very vocal during breeding season and defends his territory fiercely!

The iridescent black plumage is very attractive and the red iris is fierce.

Asian koels (Eudynamys scolopaceus) belong to the cuckoo order of birds and are fairly large birds. They can be considered a brood parasite as they lay eggs in the nests of crows and other hosts, who raise its young.
