Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter U – Needs to have the letters O and U in the word …

On the first of our camping trips, last year, I spotted this Horsfield’s Bronze-Cuckoo.

Another first for me, not having seen one before.

Lucky I took the photos (Nikon D3000), for it was not about the next day.

Sized around 17cm, this Australian cuckoo has awesome metallic colouring. It parasites the dome-shaped nests of the fairywren and thornbill, laying just one egg.

Thanks for looking.
