Short-toed Coucal
Photographer : © Stijn De Win/Birding2asia
Location :dense, riverine primary forest, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia
Date : 28 June 2017
English synonyms:
Bird Family :Centropodidae - Coucals
Red Data Status :Vulnerable
Remarks :ID confirmed with a sound recording. This seems to be a rare photo, and I have also noticed very few people may have had proper field experience with this bird. I spent over an hour with my bird to finally get the photo and sound recordings. This is inside very dense and dark primary rainforest. Short-toed Coucal is very different from Greater Coucal but not until you have actually seen one properly!! - SDW
Taxonomic Notes :Monotypic.
