Crow Pheasant / chembothu

Crow pheasant, though has the name 'crow' as part of its name, actually belongs to cuckoo family.  Like the male cuckoo this bird also has red eyes and makes a quick calling sound like the cuckoo but the voice of this bird is deep.

 It makes a deep resonant call. My recordings don't have its call hence I googled to share the same with you. Just click the link and clik the play audio.

In the busy traffic at our place, recording a clear voice is not possible as the horn sound of vehicles will make the voice of the bird fade. But I am longing to make one to put it in my collection.
 
I first heard it at my aunt's place which was then a villlage. But could not catch a glimpse of it in the thick tall trees.

Recently I started hearing the familiar call in our place but could spot it only few times. Once I saw it crossing the road (like a road runner). Many a times it comes out during the peak morning hours. But when the rains started I could see it quite often.

Captured few shots of the 'crow pheasant' (Chembothu / कौवा तीतर) when it came in the open. A crow had built its nest in a tree and this crow pheasant visited the tree like usual and the crows started chasing it. Then it took refuge in a nearby tree where I could get a good glimpse of it.

I tried to capture the picture to my level best quickly with my humble camera.

செம்பூத்து அழகுதான்! அதன் குரல்தான் வித்யாசமாக எங்கிருந்தாலும் ஒரு நிமிஷம் நிதானித்து கேட்க வைக்கும் அளவு வித்யாசமா இருக்கும். பகிர்வுக்கு நன்றி மீரா!
