Chestnut-Winged Cuckoo

The Chestnut-winged Cuckoo is a breeding resident in the Himalayas and north-east India. It winters in Southern India and Sri Lanka. Otherwise very little is known of this bird. I was lucky to see this bird flying in as I stepped into the rear balcony in the afternoon. It flew off before I could get any clearer shots of it. I was lucky to get this photo as not too many photos of this bird are available.
