CommentI was quietly sitting on our front garden bench watching a pair of Willie Wagtails in a low tree canopy when their mood changed and they took off at the moment this juvenile Fan-tailed Cuckoo landed just above me with almost clear shot with my K-3II, I managed a couple of frames before it too flew off in the direction of the two Willie Wagtails.
