Greater Coucal foraging along a branch

posted in: Feeding strategy | 0

Mike Koh a.k.a. astro08 photographed the Greater Coucal (Centropus sinensis) moving along a bare branch in a slow and clumsy manner. This method of foraging is less common than feeding on the ground.

The bird is a generalist, taking large insects and small vertebrates like snakes, lizards, frogs, mice and birds.
