The baby cockoo...hatched from the egg laid in the crow's nest by the mother ( callous / hard hearted) still is a confused fellow !! Cries like a crow..and yet to get its own sweet voice !! My heart goes out to him :)
Poor little guy with the mixed identity. He does look lost in this image.

I'm confused too. Are you sure it's a cuckoo? They don't look like that here. Nice crisp capture
20 Jan 2019 12:51pm
@grouser: yes grouser. It is the male chick cuckoo. The female cuckoo is brownish and spotted. I have been seeing these for the past eight years..It has flown off and I can hear the song in the mornings now !

@Ruthiebear: Thank you Ruthie..You van read about this in net. it is so interesting !
I have read about the cuckoo and how they lay eggs in other bird's nests. I can see why he must be confused. A beautiful portrait! His black feathers against the green leafy background is lovely!

@Adela Fonts: Thank you Adela :)
Isn't that the cuckoo's survival strategy? I don't feel sorry if theur behavior lets them prosper; perhaps symapathy for the baby crows is due - they had to share their food and space with the interloper.
21 Jan 2019 12:39am
@Harry: Yes poor baby crows..they would have had to share the food !!
It is though rather unfair Harry..Just to lay the eggs in other birds' nests and fly away!! If it was a man ( instead of a male crow) he may perhaps ordered a DNA test suspecting the baby's origin !!!!! !!!!
He'll figure it out. Nice shot of the confused fellow.
