This picture was taken in Alberton area. Unfortunately not good quality with only tail markings visible. Baby Cockoo?

Hi Chris,

Welcome to the forum!

Hard to say for sure from just the one photo but it looks a lot like a Great Spotted Cuckoo.

Let's see if there are other opinions.

Cheers,
Gordon

Hi Gordon,
Tail threw me off quite a bit. Literally had a few seconds before it flew away and only had one shot.
Thanks for your reply.

Cheers,
Chris

Hi Chris,

I just wish I could make out the head and bill to be sure... <!-- s:banghead: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/banghead.gif" alt=":banghead:" title="Frustration" /><!-- s:banghead: -->
