Plaintive Cuckoo in Ipoh

The third cuckoo that I sighted was the Plaintive Cuckoo (Cacomantis merulinus) at Kek Lok Toong, in Ipoh on 24 October 2009. The Plaintive Cuckoo is an astonishing bird, which is hardly seen in Penang but one can hear its calls in the evenings. I was very fortunate to see both male and female Plaintive Cuckoo in Ipoh. 

The female:
The male:
and they love caterpillars very much:

Happy Birding and Digiscoping.
