Pheasant coucal

Centropus phasianinus

Pheasant Coucals are large ground-dwelling birds, but unlike other cuckoos they raise their own young.
They prefer dense, under-story vegetation, grasses, rushes, bracken and sedges, in open forests and woodlands and often around wetlands.
They feed on the ground on large insects, frogs, lizards, eggs and young of birds and, sometimes even small mammals.
