Fan-tailed Cuckoo

Posted by Mel (Nthn. Victoria, Australia) on 4 June 2011 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

This bird allowed me to capture many images over a period of 2 hours in the forest. It spent most of this time feeding on the trunks of trees and seemed to eat mainly a type of "grub/ worm". Fascinating ! Photo taken in Kanyapella Forest in Nthn.Victoria, Australia.
