fan tailed cuckoo, Cacomantis flabelliformis

Fan-tailed cuckoo Cacomantis flabelliformis IMG 5937 - This Australian cuckoo, like all other cuckoos around the world, uses a brutal method to ensure the survival of its species. Female birds lay their eggs in the nests of other bird species, and when the eggs hatch the tiny baby cuckoo ruthlessly tosses the chicks of its unsuspecting surrogate parent out of the nest to an inevitable death.
