Pheasant Coucal

Pheasant Coucal
Comment:In the early morning the Pheasant Coucal's distinctive call could be heard echoing through the scrub. A little bit of searching and I was able to locate the pair with one finally landing with only minimal branches in the way. The light was still pretty low so I had to up the ISO an shoot at a low shutter speed to get the shot.
