Dinosaur of the week: Burchell’s Coucal

Many thanks to the birders on http://www.birdforum.net for helping me with the identification of this Centropus burchellii. I saw this one perched on some shrubbery while on a tour through Kruger Park. Fun fact: this bird predates on other birds up to the size of a dove.
