White-browed coucal in Africa Description

White-browed Coucal this is a large bird (about 16″, 410mm in length) with very striking plumage including its distinctive broad, yellowish-white supercilliary stripe. burchelli is missing the white superciliary stripe

Behaviour

It can be difficult to see due to its habit of skulking in shrubbery, undergrowth and dense waterside vegetation. It has a wide diet consisting mostly of insects, but it will also take young birds and eggs. While it will feed on the ground it is easily disturbed, returning to cover in a clumsy, awkward fashion. These birds are not elegant fliers!

Breeding

As with other Coucals, the White-browed Coucal is non-parasitic. The males construct a nest, they then incubate the eggs and provide most of the feeding and care for the young.
