10,000 Birds

On a recent trip to India, a non-descript tree caught my attention. But the tree had more to offer. In all, there were 6 cuckoos representing 4 species in just one tree. What was it about this tree that was so attractive to them I wondered. Between feeding raids they returned to the cover offered by the tree. The post The cuckoo tree appeared first on 10,000 Birds. It was overlooking the butterfly garden in Sanjeevaiah Park , Hyderabad.
