Call; Panjin, Liaoning, China

At an isolated pond Dawa County, Panjin, Liaoning, China. This morning, June 29 at Noon.

It is heavily overgrown around the pond and it is itself walled and gated off, so difficult to investigate, but whistling the call myself, I was able to stir up a couple of Yellow Bittern. Black-Crowned Night Heron were also present, but I have never heard any call like this and both are common. Little Grebe and Eastern Spot Billed Duck are also found on it.

No visual on any bird actually calling, but did get this audio. Anybody know what this one is?

Thanks for the help

Oh, wonderful! That is a lifer for me! Now to return and get some top notch photos. Probably were hidden in the trees where I did spot a female Black-Crowned Night Heron, which probably has a nest.

They're a bugger to see. I've heard dozens, but only seen one.

Good luck.

Interesting - I find them one of the easiest cuckoos to see here in Hong Kong, because they live in open areas and often sing in flight. Not like Large Hawk Cuckoo or, especially, Hodgson's Hawk Cuckoo, where you can be right under the tree they're in and still not see them.

Well, to be fair, my experience birding in Asia is mostly squeezing in birding around business trips, so I don't get the full immersion experience of a resident. But I agree, Large Hawk-cuckoo is even worse.
