Channel-billed Cuckoos are certainly impressive birds, more so when in
flight when they appear to be huge. The first time when I saw one near
Darwin, N.T. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me - what,  HORNBILLS
in Australia?? Their profile in flight recall those of the hornbills.

Thanks for the memory, Mike!
