Little Cuckoo

Coccycua minuta (Vieillot, 1817)

The Little Cuckoo (Coccycua minuta) is a species of bird in the cuckoo family (Cuculidae) from South America and Panama. It was formerly placed in the genus Piaya but a monotypic genus Coccycua was once erected for it. This has been reinstated following the discovery that the closest living relatives of the Little Cuckoo are some species traditionally placed in Coccyzus or Micrococcyx, rather than the other members of Piaya.
