Sunda Cuckoo

Cuculus lepidus Müller, S, 1845

The Sunda Cuckoo or Sunda Lesser Cuckoo (Cuculus lepidus) is a South-east Asian bird belonging to the genus Cuculus in the cuckoo family, Cuculidae. It was formerly classified with the Himalayan Cuckoo (C. saturatus) and Oriental Cuckoo (C. optatus) in a single species, C. saturatus, but is now often regarded as a separate species based on differences in voice, size and plumage.
