I say it is a Female Blackbird. A more spotty one than most. It is not any kind of cuckoo. It has a passerine foot, 3 toes forward and one hind toe.

Hi, this bird was seen all too fleetingly at Jerrabomberra wetlands this morning, in the vicinity of where the White-cheeked Honeyeater has been seen.

There were 2 that paused in a shady tree just long enough for this photo.  I didn't see it well in the shade and initially thought pigeon but on seeing the photo I now think is a cuckoo of some sort.

Any help appreciated
