Date : 28 April 2017
English synonyms:
Bird Family :Cuculidae - Old World Cuckoos, Koels & Malkohas
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :Calls are usually a single note, rendered as ‘kuk’, given at 1.5 to 2 second intervals and occasionally ending in a rattle of 3 rough ‘turk-turk-turk’ calls. While giving the single calls the adult often jerks up the entire tail. Occasionally there is a soft response from the partner. These could be contact calls given while foraging separately.
