Great Spotted Cuckoo
Ungulate Ecosystems (Cyprus) diorama

Photo of the Great Spotted Cuckoo, Clamator glandarius. It is a brood-parasite that, contrary to the common cuckoo that parasitizes in insectivorous birds, it parasitizes only in nests of the Magpie where it leaves its eggs. In Cyprus, it is a summer visitor.
