Horsfield’s Bronze-Cuckoo
Chrysococcyx basalis
(L 6.7" Wt 0.77 oz)
Little Desert Nature Lodge
Common across Australia
...parasitises the nests of fairy-wrens
who work in groups to chase it away.
Five species of Bronze-
Cuckoos are identified.
I hear you’re such a lazy bird, 
You cannot build a nest; 
Perhaps you could, if you would try 
We ought to do our best.
