It taught me a lesson never to delete any photos until they have been properly scrutinised. I took a lot of photos of this bird, deleted quite a few and kept only four just for record purposes. In my mind she was a Little Bronze-Cuckoo which I‘ve shot on many previous occasion, but I had noticed that she had strange looking streaks at the throat. Left the photos in the computer for three weeks thinking they were nothing special. Only after going through the Birds List of Peninsular Malaysia did I realise that there was another specie of Bronze Cuckoo. The Horsfield’s Bronze-Cuckoo is a ‘vagrant’ and according to the information I received, this could be only the second record for Peninsular Malaysia.
The barring are limited to the flanks.
