Masai Mara, Kenya

I'm trying to identify most of the birds from a safari trip. This one (three photos, same bird) doesn't appear to be in the East African book I have. He's running through the camp on the Mara river. Any help appreciated?

Welcome to Bird Forum.

This is a White-browed Coucal. The white brow is not prominent because it's a juvenile.

Thanks very much!

I knew it was distinctive but even then that was a pretty fast reply!

Many thanks,
Paul
