 Cuculus solitarius


This cuckoo is seldom seen as it sits still for long periods and calls from a hidden perch high inside a tree. The Afrikaans name “Piet-my-vrou” is onomatopoeic. It is slate grey above with barred black and white under-parts. The throat is buff-grey and the chest deep rufous. Common summer visitor.
