Striped Cuckoo

Tapera naevia

Overview 2

The Striped Cuckoo is a medium-sized, long-tailed cuckoo. This species has a wide distribution, with a range that extends from southern Mexico south to northern Argentina, and occurs in open habitat. Even so, Striped Cuckoos are heard far more often than they are seen: the ventriloquial song is a frequent sound in pastures and shrubby second growth, but the songster often is difficult to locate. The Striped Cuckoo shares with the Pheasant and Pavonine cuckoos the distinction of being one of three species of New World brood parasitic cuckoos.
