Pavonine Cuckoo

Dromococcyx pavoninus von Pelzeln, 1870

The Pavonine Cuckoo (Dromococcyx pavoninus) is a Neotropical cuckoo with a long graduated tail and a short crest. The Pavonine Cuckoo is one of three species of Neoptropical cuckoo which are known to be brood parasites. Otherwise very little is known of the behavior of this widespread but shy and skulking species, which is people hear far more often than they see. Source: Wikipedia
