Juvenile Asian Cuckoo

I got a  picture of this curious little cuckoo (a female) during one of my walks. She seemed to be curiously looking at a bunch of crows fighting over something on the ground.

While I walk in the park I am almost always looking up into the trees, I ask hubby to watch out for me.  I am so keen on taking pictures and spotting birds that I almost always trip and hubs comes to my rescue to stop me from falling.  I must look like the craziest woman there because most walkers are walking like they are in a race. I go strolling along with my heavy camera in hand and my eyes on the trees.

Sometimes people give me those weird glances, but it doesn’t bother me any more. I do what I came to do and let them do what they came there for. My walks are slow paced, mostly focused on enjoying the beauty of the scenes, watch birds and critters and take pictures too.

I like to make the best of what I have. My mission on Earth is to live life to the fullest.

  1. Cuckoos come here mainly for the Noni fruit. There are plenty of them here. As you know we have several birds that come mainly for the bird bath.

    Do those birds in your photo collection visit your garden too?

  2. We see them during Feb-May especially during Mango Blossom. I have two trees of mangoes back in India and I enjoy (some times even disturbed) by their Kuh-kuhu early in the morning. Nice capture of the bird but take care… you might hit a passerby even if your hubby is taking care of them for you.

    • I didn’t know they were fond of mango blossoms. Now I will look for them in the mango tree in season.
      I don’t usually walk in the runners lane. So no chance of tripping anyone. Besides hubs always pushes me around LOL.
