This beautiful person is new to us. It showed up in our shrubs today 10 November, a windy, blustery day at the tail end of a 4-day long storm. It is a green-billed coucal from Shri Lanka. It appeared to us to be very young and unable to fly. Gopal took the picture out our bedroom window.
Needless to say, most of the birds here are the same. But there are a couple Himalayan birds I never saw over at Lingama Colony. We're at a little higher elevation here, but we're in the mountains.
