Common cuckoo (Cuculus canorus)

Bird that everyone heard before, but probably never seen it before. Today was my lucky day because i wanted to see it up close and photograph it for a long time.
With cuckoo there are many traditions, here in Slovenia is tradition that when you hear it for the first time in that year and you have some money in your pocket and you touch that money while cuckoo sings then this year is gona be financialy very good for you.

Same tradition in Poland. If you do not have money in your pocket you gonna be financially screwed ;). And you are right. Heard cuckoo hundred times, never seen it :(.
