Comments: This cuckoo was found in a woodland kind of habitat and sun not being so strong this cuckoo was perched on a dry tree with wings fluffed up. It sat in this position for almost 10 minutes and then turned back and spread outs it feathers. It preened for a while and when it took off from the perch, it flew low and landed on the ground.
