Green-billed Coucal

Centropus chlororhynchos Blyth, 1849

The green-billed coucal is a member of the cuckoos. It is endemic to Sri Lanka's wet zone and listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, as the small population declined due to forest destruction and fragmentation. It inhabits the tall rainforests of southwest Sri Lanka and nests in bushes. Its typical clutch is 2–3 eggs. Source: Wikipedia
