It hops about in thick bushes with considerable address, much as a crow-pheasant does.
The crow-pheasant is one of the most familiar of Indian birds.
The coucal or crow-pheasant, for example, is divided up into three local races.
There is something very pompous about the strut of the crow-pheasant.
The whoot, whoot, whoot of the crow-pheasant booms from almost every thicket.
The common coucal or crow-pheasant (Centropus sinensis) is a cuckoo that builds a nest and incubates its eggs.
Other birds that lift up their voices at early dawn are the crow-pheasant, the black partridge and the peacock.
The nest of the crow-pheasant or coucal is a massive structure, globular in shape, with the entrance at one side.
The crow-pheasant is widely distributed in India, being found in gardens, in cultivated fields, and in the jungle.
On looking up, I saw a crow-pheasant (Centropus rufipennis) running up a branch in the inimitable manner of his kind.
