Squirrel Cuckoo

Another bird I enjoyed in Ecuador was the Squirrel Cuckoo. It struck me as comical, maybe because it really acted like a squirrel as it clambered around among the leaves and small branches where one normally finds much smaller birds feeding. But the long tail did not seem to hinder its movements, and it was certainly very agile. This one did not appear to mind that I was watching it from a distance of about 40 ft.
