[Photo] Channel-billed Cuckoo :: Scythrops novaehollandiae. Shy birds, channel-billed cuckoos roost and feed high in the treetops. Recognisable by their toucan-like bill, they grow to 67cm. Like most cuckoos, they lay their eggs in the nests of other birds (e.g. currawongs, magpies, crows), which then raise the cuckoo chicks. A summer visitor from Indonesia and New Guinea, the channel-billed cuckoo arrives in northern and eastern Australia around August-September, and departs March-April.
