This genus is endemic to Madagascar.
These birds are rather large, have a soft and lax plumage with dove-like brown and rufous colours (except Blue Coua).
They share large feet, a long tail and colourful bare skin around the eye. Many species have long eyelashes.
Most Couas are terrestrial and as most species in this family they aren't brood parasites.
Coua is a genus in the Family Cuculidae.
They are probably closely related to the Orld World ground-cuckoos and the malkohas.
