Pheasant, Kai or Timor Coucal

Centropus [phasianinus, mui or spilopterus] (= Centropus phasianinus) (Latham, 1801)

The pheasant coucal is a species of cuckoo in the family Cuculidae. It is found in Australia, Timor and New Guinea. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical mangrove forests. It has adapted well to canefields in northern Australia. The pheasant coucal is unusual among Australian cuckoos in that it incubates and raises its own young instead of laying its eggs in the nest of another species. Source: Wikipedia
