Lesser Ground-Cuckoo

Morococcyx erythropygus erythropygus

 

Northern Puntarenas province, Costa Rica.

 

I don't remember the exact locality, but it was in dry woodland not far from the coast. Not a "true" ground-cuckoo as it is in a different genus and is not a bird of rainforest. Still, it's a unique, monotypic species, and always great to see.
