2. Ground feeders.
3. Respected even by hawks because they do not scatter away at signs of trouble but stand fast besides their comrades.
4. Common foster parent for Large Hawk-Cuckoo and Pied Crested Cuckoo.
5. Rather brave, the picture of the bird with its feathers all puffed up was shot when that individual came to scare me off!!
