The 'pied' visitor from Africa!
Amazing how connected bird lovers and tree lovers across the globe can get and can share almost overnight interesting stuff on birds and trees. On my bird group there is a bit of excitement about how the Pied Cuckoo is all set to visit us here in India with the advent of the monsoons.
So scientists are connecting their arrival with our monsoons which seem to have already begun here in Bangalore.Loud and persistent calling of the bird has begun so keep an eye out - incase you see one which is 'pied' and not our customary jet black Indian species with the famous red eye, then you have seen a visitor!
