Pallid cuckoo

The pallid cuckoo (Cacomantis pallidus) is a species of cuckoo in the Cuculidae family. It is found in Australia, Christmas Island, Indonesia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests and subtropical or tropical mangrove forests. Its egg weighs about 3.9g and it incubates for about 13 days.[2]

Taxonomy[edit]

Sources differ in the genera placement of this species. It is commonly placed in Cuculus, but genetic evidence has suggested that it should be placed in Cacomantis.[3] As of 2013, ITIS still listed the genus as Cuculus.[4]
