Asian Koel

Jurong Birdpark, Singapore

Latin name: Eudynamys scolopacea (Linnaeus 1758).

Asian Koels feed almost entirely in the canopy of trees. Occasionally mixed flocks are formed with other species such as pigeons. Food consists of fruits, especially figs,
taken directly from the tree.

Map of the distribution of the Asian Koel is given here. A photo of the egg of an Asian Koel is here.
