Cuckoos calling

November 25, 2011

All four of the cuckoos that regularly visit the Flowerdale/Strath Creek area each year to breed have been in full voice in recent weeks. Click on the arrow on the sound icon to hear each of their calls, which were recorded locally.

Fan-tailed Cuckoo –


Pallid Cuckoo –


Horsfield’s Bronze-Cuckoo –


Shining Bronze-Cuckoo –

Another cuckoo, the Brush Cuckoo, would probably have been found in the wetter forests of the upper King Parrot Creek valley, and it would be interesting to know if it has returned since the 2009 fires.
Any sightings or calls heard?
