Lesser Coucal drying after a rain

posted in: Feathers-maintenance | 0

Lim Poh Bee was at Pulau Ubin and send in this piece: “Not too long ago someone reported a Lesser Coucal (Centropus bengalensis) spreading itself out on a road sunning and drying itself. Well, I think this is the more usual way of it drying itself after a morning downpour. We were out at Ubin and we saw at least four of them all puffed up and preening themselves (above). Unfortunately, the flight shots weren’t that successful (below). But the sheer numbers of them in the open were a treat in itself.”
