[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
while out on the lake with the kayak, i heard this little one singing away happily. Its not the best shot but being a little unstable it was the risk of loosing my camera to the water. So this is as good as i could get without the risk of me capsizing over.

I have not seen many cuckoo´s but always hear them around. This time i got a little lucky to have this one land fairly close.

I found more information about cuckoo´s on this RSPB website: http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/birdguide/name/c/cuckoo/index.asp

Hi Demetrio,
Agree with your note, these birds are more often heard than seen. A nice composition and great background, given the situation you were in a good capture. The light wasn't really in your favour but from a kayak not a lot you could do about that.
