Hi All,
Just saw this on the Malaysian Birders mailing-list and thought some
might find it interesting given the subject came up recently on
birding-aus. Unfortunately the email addresses are encrypted but if you
want to contact Glenda please let me know and I will pass on your

               Subject:  Horsfield's Bronze Cuckoo

               I have just returned from Layang-Layang in the middle of
the south-china
               sea, where I was amazed to see 3 of the above species of
Australian bird...I
               can't imagine what they were doing there, but I was
wondering--has there
               been an explosion of the species into our region this
year? Has it been
               sighted in Singapore or Malaysia by any of you? If not,
double check those
               Bronze-cuckoos!! It is easily distinguished (see your
field guides) and is
               an open country bird. They were calling too on LLayang--a
single plaintive
               descending note repeated at close intervals, reminescent
of the
               Yellow-bellied Prinia's "chair" (not the trill). They
were coming down to
               the ground to pick up caterpillars.
               Good hunting!
