Fan Tailed Cuckoo

I grabbed my camera to help me identify one of the birds in my garden.  Great thing is I can look at the photo and then use cool sites like Birds in Backyards to help me identify them later.  This is the fan tailed cuckoo, easily identifiable by the yellow ring around the eye.  The song call here differs from the recording on Birds in Backyards: here the call is longer and not rapidly repeated (much nicer if you ask me <g>)



In that last photo that’s a big fat juicy worm he’s about to gulp down.
