Hi all,

Just went for a walk in Campbell Park and saw a juvenile cuckoo, but I'm not 100% sure of the ID because I hadn't a great look at it and the light was not great either.
Given the size, I guess it could be a Horsfield's or a Shining, but as you can maybe see on the attached pictures there is no eyebrow (distinctive of a Horsfield's), so I would conclude that it was a juvenile Shining bronze-cuckoo, but I would appreciate any help to confirm or not my ID.

Merry Christmas !
