Project Report | Apr 5, 2019
Species of Month

By DHARMENDRASINH RATHOD | GENERAL MANAGER

Species of the Week : Common Hawk-cuckoo

This medium sized bird falls in the cuckoo family, but the plumage resembles that of a Shikra. It is mainly an arboreal bird (spends most of the time in the trees) and has typical perching feet, with two toes facing forward and two facing backward. 
The common hawk-cuckoo also mimics the shikra's flight pattern, often confusing bird-watchers, but the key identifying points are the legs and the beak. The legs are much shorter and closer to the body, whereas the shikra has long legs. The beak is also longer and pointed when compared to a shikra. The cuckoo-hawk also has a very prominent yellow eye ring. 
Its main diet is insects and fruits from certain trees.

This cuckoo-hawk was brought in very weak and dehydrated. It took a week of treatment, feeding and exercise before the bird regained its strength and was fit for release.

 

We Thanks all Donors for their help in terms of Donation to save and conserve Such Species.
