Grey-bellied Cuckoo


The Grey-bellied Cuckoo or the Indian Plaintive CuckooCacomantis passerinus, is a member of the cuckooorder of birds, the Cuculiformes, which also includes the roadrunners, the anis, and the Hoatzin.
It breeds in tropical southern Asia from India and Sri Lanka to south China and Indonesia. It is a short-distancemigrant, since birds at more northerly latitudes and on higher ground are summer visitors, leaving for warmer areas in winter.
