A Tricky Cuckoo.  In the last-but one CBN, in relation to field guide limitations, I mentioned the problem of the young bronze-cuckoos.  This one was silent, but does not have a juv gape so it is not all that young.  However it is fairly plain on the breast with rudimentary barring.  I am no expert but I take it to be a Shining because:  1/  it has quite a bit of colour on the back,  2/  the face looks like a Shining, in particular no eye-stripe, and 3/  no rufous in the tail.
