bird call of the week (19th Dec 2009)

This week’s bird is the swamp pheasant (or Pheasant Coucal).

Apparently it belongs to the cuckoo family and is widespread wherever there is thick vegetation in eastern and northern Australia as well as PNG and East Timor. I love to hear its hollow, sad call echoing through the undergrowth.
