Cuckoos are the most variable birds in social behaviour and parental care. Robert Payne presents a new evolutionary history of the family based on molecular genetics, and uses the family tree to explore their origins and diversity of behaviour.
...illustrated to a very high standard. The text is both informative and easy to read as it uses a slightly larger font size than in some handbooks. Jean Torrance, Scottish Bird Review In summary, "The Cuckoos" is a good review text of this fascinating group of birds that will serve as a reference text for many years to come. The strength of this book lies in the equal treatment of all cuckoo species whether they lay eggs in their own nests or in those of another species. Charles Deeming, Hatchery Consulting & Research
