 Chrysococcyx klaas


A small cuckoo. The male is bright metallic green above, white below and has white streak behind the eye. The female is brown above, faintly barred brown on white below, barred green wings and a whitish patch behind the eye. Both sexes have white outer tail feathers. The call is plaintive - the Afrikaans name, meitjie, is onomatopoeic. Common summer resident.
