Hello,

I thought this was a Senegal coucal but I'm thinking it could be White-browed? Could anyone please confirm?

Thanks

The white supercilium is diagnostic in White-browed. Confusion with juv Burchell's where ranges meet, but juv Burchell's have plain wings. (No barring). The supercilium on juv Burchell's is buff, not white. Juv Burchell's in very hard to separate from juv White-browed, near impossible in field.
