Abstract

On 24 October 2014 at 17h50, I observed a Burchell's Coucal in Port Alfred, calling. This coucal was then joined by what I first thought was a Black Coucal, due to its completely black chest ... After debate and discussion with a group of experts, and taking all aspects mentioned above into consideration, it was concluded that the bird was indeed a dark morph of Burchell's Coucal, and with that, the first proven record of this morph occurring in Burchell's Coucal
