ABACO’S THREE CUCKOO SPECIES
There are 3 cuckoo species recorded for Abaco, all permanent residents. Two are relatively scarce; the third is the much-loved gregarious and raucous Ani. Recently I was contacted about a cuckoo seen on Man-O-War Cay. The photo revealed more of a glimpse than a sighting… but it clearly was not an all-black Ani. So here are the 3 species to admire in all their glory – and in the case of the first 2, to highlight the differences between them.

Three cuckoo species is a lot — great to see them all, RH. Lovely photos.
Thanks Jet, and good to hear from you. I think we have both reduced our posting quite a lot. For me it was originally 3X pw then 2X pw… now 1 – 2X per month!
