White-crowned Cuckoo

Caliechthrus leucolophus (Müller, S, 1840)

The White-crowned Cuckoo or White-crowned Koel (Cacomantis leucolophus) is a species of cuckoo in the Cuculidae family. It was formerly placed in the monotypic genus Caliechthrus but it has a similar song to cuckoos of the genus Cacomantis and is genetically similar to the Pallid Cuckoo (Cacomantis pallidus), so most taxonomists place it there. It is found in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, occurring on New Guinea and neighbouring Salawati Island. Source: Wikipedia
