Pavonine Cuckoo

Dromococcyx pavoninus

 

Intervales State Park, São Paulo state, Brazil.

 

A fairly widespread South American tropical forest species, but always scarce and shy. This was one of the very rare occasions where one sat mostly in the open for me. Too bad about those leaves in the way, which certainly detracted from the quality of the image.
