Seeing Pied Crested Cuckoo and observing a jungle babbler feeding the chick of the pied crested cuckoo, later on .
The arrival of the pied crested cuckoo in India indicates the arrival of monsoons.
I saw Pied Crested Cuckoo on a Keekar Tree, where they generally perch early morning. I saw two of them perched high on a canopy. I observed some movement and kept on watching them continuously for 5 minutes. It was their mating, rare shot in the wild. I do remember observing their courtship in the air on 11th August and mating on 16th September in the heart of Delhi in 2014.
