Justification
This species has an extremely large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be increasing, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

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]
