PALLID CUCKOO (Cuculus pallidus)
Biodiversity > Birds > Rare visitors and vagrants

Vagrant. One record. A specimen was collected by the Australian Museum party in August–September 1887 (Etheridge 1889; AM O.1477). In addition Alan Rogers briefly saw a cuckoo species in December 1968 as it flew across a small clearing. The bird appeared to be the size and shape of a Pallid Cuckoo, but could not be identified with certainty (A. Rogers in litt.).
