Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources






The white-browed coucal is a cuckoo relative that is not parasitic. It is wide-spread and common in northern Tanzania in a variety of habitat, often near water. The nest is a large bowl with an entrance platform, see in the enlargements. The top photo (Mkomazi, 3-20) is courtesy of Kim Axmann. The other photos were taken in Tarangire NP and Lake Manyara NP. An immature and a nest with an egg are shown in the enlargements: note the black eye and the barring on the wings of the immature.
