KoekoeāLong-tailed cuckoo

Conservation status
In some trouble

With a tail as long as its body and a harsh screeching call, the long-tailed cuckoo is hard to miss if you come across one in the forest. They spend their summers breeding in New Zealand and can be found in the Pacific between Palau and the Pitcairn islands during winter.
