Scaled Ground-Cuckoo

Neomorphus squamiger Todd, WEC 1925

The scaled ground cuckoo is a species of cuckoo in the family Cuculidae. It is endemic to the Amazon rainforest near the Tapajos River in Brazil, but much confusion exists over the exact limits of its range and the features useful for separating it from the very similar rufous-vented ground cuckoo. Consequently, it has sometimes been considered a subspecies of the rufous-vented ground cuckoo. Source: Wikipedia
