Burchell's coucal
Appearance
Very similar to the slightly smaller Senegal and White-browed Coucals but this species has fine, rufous barring on the rump and the base of the tail.
Juvenile is indistinguishable in the field from juvenile Senegal and White-browed Coucals.
Habitat
Long grass, riverine scrub, reedbeds, woodland and suburban gardens.
Call
A liquid, bubbling 'doo-doo-doo-doo', descending in scale, then rising towards the end of the phrase.
