NOTES: (1) JAN 23. THE TYPICAL DOUBLE CALL - 'KUK-UK'. SEVERAL EXAMPLES. (2) JAN 26. A SINGLE CALL REPEATED SEVERAL TIMES. SEE COMMENTS REGARDING ABERRANT NATURE OF THIS COUCAL - THE KUKUK CALL (NOT A BIT LIKE THE ORDINARY COUCAL'S WATER BOTTLE TYPE); ALSO THE STRONG PHEASANT-LIKE FLIGHT. IF IT HAD BEEN PUT IN A SEPARATE GENUS I WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN A BIT SURPRISED.
