Channel-billed Cuckoo Gallery

Skythrops novaehollandia
This very large and powerful parasidic bird is an occassioal visitor to Wombolly.  It's quite unique raucous squawking call can be heard echoing through the tree-tops.  A young bird has been seen in the trees making a big din, while a poor Currawong flies back and forth with food to satisfy the Cuckoo's voracious appetite.  Click on images to enlarge.
