Had an interesting cuckoo on our tv antenna this morning, back light to mid
grey, wings mottled brown, throat,breast and belly very pale, almost white,
with a few faint bars on the lower belly, mottling under wings, tail
feathers with buff/white toothing. Head , nape and upper neck shaggy
streaked brown, eye ring yellowish. To me this seems to indicate a not quite
mature Pallid, but it also had a very noticeable white shoulder marking like
a Fantail, which is not illustrated in any of my field guides, and I would
appreciate comments. Duncan Fraser, Maffra, Vic.
