Sumatran Ground-Cuckoo

Carpococcyx viridis Salvadori, 1879

The Sumatran Ground Cuckoo (Carpococcyx viridis) is a large, about 55 centimetres (22 in) long, long-tailed terrestrial species of cuckoo. It has a green upperparts plumage with black crown, green bill and legs, bluish green bare orbital skin and brown below. It was formerly considered conspecific with the Bornean Ground Cuckoo. An Indonesian endemic, the Sumatran Ground Cuckoo is distributed to rainforests of southern Sumatra. Before it was rediscovered and photographed in 1997 by Andjar Rafiastanto, this elusive species was known only from eight specimens. Source: Wikipedia
