Plaintive Cuckoo

Cacomantis merulinus

I had known this Cuckoo's distinctive call ever since I was a child growing up in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I have to thank Connie Khoo of Ipoh for getting this bird for me; it is one bird that I have always wanted to photograph. Connie is a very well known birder in Malaysia, and has had many articles published.
