Southern Coucal

When the rains stop for a while and the sun shines through the clouds, both the birds and their photographers get busy. The birds, dry and clean their feathers and photographers like me, use this lovely moment to get some nice moments. Like this Southern Coucal ( Centropus (sinensis) parroti ), which is generally a very shy birds and is quite alert to human presence. But when the sun shines through, all is forgotten and drying their feathers becomes a priority. It was quite a delight watching the bird and photographing it in various 'yogic' postures as it dried itself.
