Gray-capped Cuckoo

Coccyzus lansbergi

 

El Tambo, Santa Elena province, Ecuador.

 

A very seasonal species in Ecuador, probably migratory, but its movements are not understood. It appears to breed in areas of desert and dry forest during the rainy season, but seems to be absent from these areas in the dry season. Where they go is not known; it also occurs in parts of N Colombia and N Venezuela, and may migrate to those areas, but there is only circumstantial evidence to support this.
