Indian Cuckoo in comfort behaviour

on 3rd February 2009

Lee Tiah Khee captured an image of an Indian Cuckoo (Cuculus micropterus) in its comfort behaviour.

As in most birds, the cuckoo stretched it’s pair of wings to give itself an “angel” pose and at the same time fanned its tail feathers.

Check out the comfort behaviour of other birds: kingfisher, hornbill, bee-eater and Lineated Barbet.
