CommentThe Channel-billed Cuckoo has such an impressive beak that I had to include this photo as part of my submissions. We had heard the loud crowing and squawking to alert us of of its presence but it took a while to spot it sitting atop some branches. It has the appearance similar to the African hornbills and I like it's bright red eye.It has the dubious honour of being the largest Parasitic bird.
