Artist's Description

I’ve been trying to get a photo of one of these for ages. Luck would have it that one actually kept still for long enough, right over the back fence of our yard. (Sydney, Australia.)

This is a Koel, an Australasian/S.E. Asian species of cuckoo. This black one is the male.

Other birds are always chasing them off, which puzzles me. If the other birds know what the cuckoos do, why do they allow it when it happens? Is there some loophole in the laws of nature that says; when a cuckoo lays its egg, you must care for the hatchling?
