The arrival of the Jacobin Cuckoo or Pied Crested Cuckoo is believed to announce that the monsoon is here
Last year we saw a pair again in the same vicinity and one of them got really close for photography. This year, I have sighted at least 20 Jacobin Cuckoos, in various parts, though my luck with photography was considerably less. But I got an opportunity to see one feeding on a caterpillar and got a record shot!
