Violet Cuckoo

10th October 2009, Kemensah, Selangor

A lifer: Usually Cuckoos tend to have dull plumage but this Cuckoo had striking colours. A   Violet Cuckoo (Chrysococcyx xanthorhynchus)._DSC0069




  1. Beautiful colour. Hard to get this bird.
    Madi, you are using new computer that set a high resolution. You need to change your computer display properties, and set it to 1024 x 768 pixels.
    Me and Wilma are still using an old computer screen. ;)

    Very tired, no time to edit photos for today shooting.
    Thanks for Nasi Kandar.

  2. Hi Madi -

    it is quite violet, isn't it? And it has such pretty breast markings. I can see all your text now, but i still have to scroll over to the Kingisher on the right side of the banner photo. And when I do that I can't see all the things on the left side. As Tabib suggested, I am using a pretty old computer. Maybe no one else has this problem.
