Black-bellied Cuckoo

Piaya melanogaster (Vieillot, 1817)

The black-bellied cuckoo or black-bellied squirrel cuckoo is a bird of the family Cuculidae found in the Amazon region. The genus Playa is considered part of the cuckoos of the New World. Even though this species has a wide distribution, little is known about its ecology and natural history. This species is considered as monotypic. The word melanogaster means "black belly"; it has Greek roots, melas meaning "black" and gaster meaning "belly". Source: Wikipedia
