The cuckoo is a bird with a hollow-sounding, plaintive call that sounds like: coo-coo coo coo-coo-coo. Its name was taken from the sound of its call.
There are about 142 species of cuckoo. These birds are widely distributed in temperate and tropical regions. Many cuckoos live in the canopy of the rainforests (in Australia, South America, Asia, and Africa), although others live in the desert (like the road runner, which is a ground cuckoo) and other varied environments.
The different cuckoo species come in many different muted colors, with feathers ranging from gray to yellow to cream.
