Hi is it Horsfield's Bronze Cuckoo?  You have taken fantastic photos of it.

Thank you Beef

Thank you Rozkidd. We live at Coffs Harbour NSW, never seen one in backyard before.

I have other photographs of it as well.

They often fly into windows, then sit in the garden as they gather their wits. Yours was probably recovering from hitting a window.

It's a Shining Bronze-Cuckoo, not a Horsfield's which have an obvious dark stripe thru the eye.

Cheers, Steve
