Couas are one of 5 endemic bird families restricted entirely to the island of Madagascar. Comprising 9 species, all of which are large and mostly terrestrial, they derive their name from koa, the Malagasy name for a cuckoo or coua, an onomatopoeic rendition of some species’ call notes. This bird, the appropriately named Giant Coua, is the biggest of the lot, being almost 1 ½ times larger than the other 8 species – David KaplanMadagascar
