The Asian Koel

Had spotted the beautiful black male Asian Koel quite many days ago and you can know more about the cuckoo in the post I'd done then titled 'Two in the Bush'

Yesterday after th epre-monsoon showers I was standing on the terrace and my little 1 year old spots this bird hidden between the branches. It also appeared as if it was shivering in the cold winds..
We blew her lots of flying kissys ..:) but only God can do something to keep her warm...:(

Observe the beautiful pattern on her body, the spots are complemented by the striped tail.
