Aha! Good spot! :+1: :+1:
Did you manage to record the above-mentioned courtship (seem-to-be) calls between the male and female Cuckoo?
And how did you identify the birds as fe/male just by looking at them!? :face_with_monocle: :astonished:

I missed recording the call. I was busy admiring the beauty😉
Females cuckoo was identified with help of Google lens
Black male cuckoo was hiding in the tree, so couldn’t capture

The cuckoo call starts slowly and the pitch increases slowly…
The call finally stops after a highest pitch
Let me know how can I upload this audio here

I’m able to upload audio on 21.4.21

If you aren’t able to upload the audio directly, then you can try uploading the audio on a cloud sharing platform such as Google Drive and then share the link of that audio file here alongwith a description of the same :raised_hands:

Very interesting :smiley:. Is it always like this, pitch gradually increasing and ending at highest pitch?
