Lesser Cuckooshrike Coracina fimbriata culminata   - Immature
Lesser Cuckooshrike
Photographer : © Amar-Singh HSS
Location :Kledang-Sayong Forest Reserve, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia
Date : 28 August 2018
English synonyms:Lesser Cuckoo-shrike, Lesser Greybird, Lesser Graybird, Lesser Cicadabird
Bird Family :Oriolidae - Orioles, Figbirds, Cuckooshrikes, Trillers, Minivets & Flycatcher-shrikes
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :I was inclined to identify this Lesser Cuckooshrike (Post 1) as an adult female but Wells 2007 says of immatures that “both sexes as adult female, except that the lower tail-coverts and leg-feathering are both barred, and lower wing-covets boldly bared black and white”. There clear barring of the leg-feathering in this bird suggesting an immature. There is also some degree of moulting of feathers. I think this bird is an immature female.
