CommentLittle Bronze-Cuckoo (race russatus) Townsville, Bohle Wetlands Revegetation Reserve.

During our monthly bird survey, this bird flew in to a branch at eye-level about 3 metres down-light of me. It stayed relaxed for a good 5 minute photo shoot, while it snoozed, and preened. (while I remained motionless, except for quietly manipulating the camera settings and my index finger firing the shutter button)

It then flew a short distance to join another Little Bronze-Cuckoo, and they continued feeding on small caterpillars.
