4th July 2010, Kemensah, Selangor.
A startled female Himalayan Cuckoo ( Cuculus saturatus) formerly known as the Oriental Cuckoo ( probably a juvenile) flew across the trail in her effort for a quick get away. She paused for a short while before flying deeper into the forest. Lifer
Update: 7th July 2010. I’ve been reviewing the photos of this bird and I think I have made a mistake in the ID. I think she’s a Rusty-breasted Cuckoo with some strange barrings on the upperpart (wings). The barrings on the underside are less pronounced than that of the Himalayan. Anyway, I think it is now off season for Himalayan Cuckoos. Sorry guys.
Just too many branches in the way for a clean shot.
