Hodgson’s Hawk-Cuckoo

11th April 2010, Fraser’s Hill, Pahang.

_DSC0014_f A  startled Hodgson’s Hawk Cuckoo  flew  across our path onto this tree. The narrow penultimate tail band  differentiates  it from the Malaysian Hawk-Cuckoo. A lifer.




  1. wow, you had an awesome trip up the Hill Station huh?

  2. My head is still spinning after going through the comparison they made between the 2 birds. I, myself, would be just satisfied that I got a large Cuckcoo Hawk. That's what I did. At the Telecom Loop, beside the Barbet Tree.

  3. Congratulations on your lifer Madi. You celebrated with a great picture as usual.
