I also suggest that the tail is too long for a Brush Cuckoo and fits the longer tailed Fantailed Cuckoo.

Hi Kym,


If I saw that I would call it a juvenile Fantailed Cuckoo. But it is one of the difficult ones. Hard to pick from juvenile Brush Cuckoo. But juvenile Brush Cuckoo are much more strongly marked on back. This one is quite plain on the back.
