Long-tailed Cuckoo Waikanae

Postby GrahamB » Sun Aug 11, 2019 10:40 am

A loud Long-tailed Cuckoo was calling in our small piece of bush in Waikanae, about 7.30. Claire was up and heard it several times (familiar with call from our Dawson Falls trip, and she listened to a recording on the internet). I heard it once. Perhaps these strong northerlies/northwesterlies have pushed it down.
