Greater Coucal - it spent a lot of time drinking water from this bucket !
Coucals, Greater, June'12, Villa, Bhiwadi


Another few years' gap in my posts. We are now in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan, and I am not active in my work life for now.

We have been developing a garden at our new house for the last two years. Have had a couple of Coucal's visiting. Fascinating, as they are large enough for us to observe more clearly what they do.. they seem to drink a lot of water ! They spent long minutes at the several water bowls in the garden. And hopped around on the grass, and in and out of trees. It is a treat to watch one of these birds. I see on the net that they are found in Haryana, W Bengal, Karanataka and Kerala.
