Species Description
The Crow Pheasant or Greater Coucal is a non-parasitic cuckoo found in a wide range of habitats throughout Asia, from India to China and Indonesia. The Greater Coucal is a weak flier, spending most of its time on the ground searching for insects, eggs, nestlings and small vertebrates. It gets up into trees by climbing up inclined branches to the canopy, jumping from branch to branch, and then gliding back down to the ground; it catches insects during the glide, and also jumps up into the air to catch flying insects. The Greater Coucal’s call is very deep, and has been associated with spirits and omens.
