Photo is taken at Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur, Rajasthan, India.
Color of adult male Asian koel is glossy bluish-black or greenish-black. Wings are relatively short, but tail is rather long.
Asian Koel doesn’t build any nest, lays its eggs, in the nest of other birds’ species. They often choose crows’ nest. Its eggs are rather smaller, but very like the crows in appearance, pale greyish-green or stone color speckled and blotched with reddish-brown.
Asian Koel is very vocal. Often heard before seen, song of the male is a repeated koo-Ooo- koo-Ooo- koo-Ooo. The female makes a shrill kik-kik-kik… call.
