Hodgson's Hawk Cuckoo

Cuculus fugax

Bidadari Park in Singapore seems to attract migrant Cuckoos during season. This used to be the Muslim cemetery and all graves had been exhumed and moved to a new location. It was quite eerie to wander over this wooded area, especially since some of the graves had not been refilled fully, and during an impending thunderstorm when it became quite dark and I was alone! However, this Cuckoo perched low and was very accommodating, allowing me to get close.
