Rescued this cuckoo from the road yesterday morning. Both wings are injured, but hope it'll survive.

with its banded strips rather those streaks, i would say this is a Indian cuckoo than what the other photographers were referring to as Malayan Hawk cuckoo.
you may wanted to see my post on the Malayan Hawk cuckoo in Dec 2016 (spotted at SBWR). pic taken on 6 Nov 2017.

In the Mahabharata, during their exile in the forest, the sages tell the Pandavas the story of Ushinara, king of Shibi. One day, a dove came to the king and begged the king to grant him protection. When the king promised to protect him, a hawk, who was pursuing the dove, asked, “What will I eat then?” The king told the hawk to eat any other dove but this one. The hawk argued that was unfair – why should other doves be sacrificed so that the king could keep his promise to his dove. The king then requested the hawk to eat any other bird or beast. The hawk argued that was unfair – why should other birds and beasts be sacrificed so that the king could keep his promise to his dove. “Then eat me,” said the king, offering pieces of his flesh. These were placed on a balancing scale so that the hawk got flesh equal in measure to the dove’s weight. To the astonishment of the king, the dove was so heavy that he had to give up almost all the flesh of his body.

Typically, the story is narrated to extol the virtues of the king Ushinara’s kindness and sacrifice. But there is an underlying wisdom in this story. In nature, hawks eat doves. By introducing the human virtue of kindness into the natural law, the king could not make both the hawk and the dove happy. Either the dove had to die or the hawk had to go starving. Since neither was acceptable, the king had to die. #nature #bird #birdsnest #cuckoo #indiancuckoo #birdsofinstagram #mahabharata #mythology #indianmythology #everydaynature

Hitchhiking home.
This Indian Cuckoo flew too low and hit the car driving way home. It seemed dying at first, but in some time barfed a cherry🍒 and recovered quickly. After a short ride, it was ready to fly again. Soon as it did, the usual crow-chase started which might have been the actual reason for the accident itself.

The Indian Cuckoo lives in forests and open woodland in zones as high as 3,600 metres. Their preferred habitat is deciduous and evergreen forests but they also occur in garden lands and thick scrubs. 70-300 shot frm Nikon D5300. #indiancuckoo #vishupakshi #cuculusmicropterus #photography #wildlife #birdsaround #birdkingdom #nature #nikond5300 #nikon #amateurphotography #naturelove #hobby #quickfocus

My mornings these days...waking up to the sound of a cuckoo (real one not an app or alarm)...it's an awesome experience #birds #cuckoo #indiancuckoo #birdwatching #birdchirping

Indian Cuckoo (Cuculus micropterus)
A first sighting for me and really wouldn't even have seen this fella if not for @kingsley_pkl. At least from a spotting perspective, today was a pretty awesome day. First time seeing this fella, the red crowned barbet, jambu fruit dove and the greater green leafbird (I think). Plus, the others spotted today include the scarlet-backed flowerpecker, orange-bellied flowerpecker, mynas (lots), Asian glossy starlings, drongos, common flameback woodpeckers, lineated barbet, little spiderhunter and tailor bird.

That look in her eyes,
Longing for her loved one to arrive,
Those who felt it should know,
Not all waits end in sorrow

This fellow has popped out very recently into this world with another two. These days it is doing small distances, after getting tired it decided to took a break.

Notorious for being a brood parasite, the cuckoo relies on others to raise their young.
First, an egg is laid in another birds nest. Once the chick is hatched, it kicks out the original chicks from the nest. The host parents are basically manipulate to raise the cuckoo as its own.
Birds like the crow, which are smart enough to recognise a cuckoo, will deliberately attack them on sight.
