Cuckoo- Oman

I think it's a Common Cuckoo. Taken on the 16th October 2018 in Oman (Middle East). Grateful for any thoughts on the ID.

It's a Cuculus cuckoo, by far the most likely being Common Cuckoo indeed !

Birds are disappearing because we destroy their natural habitat. By far, the main reason of this destruction is animal agriculture; thus, the first essential step for all bird lovers: becoming vegan.
