Guira Cuckoo, ready to pounce (South America).
Snapped @ Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, Virginia.
The evil streak of some feathered friends catch me by surprise. Greylag Geese at local lakes stand as Exhibit A. But the Guira Cuckoo’s entire persona shouts “keep your distance.” Body language, darting eyes, twitching head —- hey, I honored the warning!
