Alone in the grass, mere metres away from a busy thoroughfare of noisy humans, this juvenile Pheasant Coucal chased and rummaged for some kind of living food in the long grass, seemingly uninhibited by me or others. Unlike other cuckoos, this species doesn’t engage in the treacherously deceptive style of parenting they are so famous for. Maybe that’s why this particular young individual is so well-adjusted and behaved – good parents!
