CommentEach year from November to March, Koels and Channel Billed Cuckoos plant their eggs in the nests of birds who then act as foster parents, after their own chicks are ejected from the nest, by the foreign chick. This Black-faced Cuckoo-Shrike chick was one of three ejected from their home. By the time I found them, two were dead, and covered in ants - this one survived.
EquipmentNikon D7000 - Tamron 70-300 mm - f8 - ISO800
