White-Browed Coucal

The white-browed coucal has red eyes, rufous wings, a brown face and crown with a long white eyebrow, a dusky nape, chest and upper body with black and white streaks, a white belly and a long black tail. 
White-browed coucal in Nairobi NP, Kenya.
It is found from Ethiopia south through most of east Africa to Malawi, the Zambezi River and Angola. It is often called the "water bottle bird" because its bubbly call sounds like water being poured out of a bottle. We only saw one, in Nairobi National Park.
