A weak bird that travels on the backs of kites
The flight of the cuckoo is short and weak, so to prevent fatigue they sometimes travel on the backs of kites. Their saliva produces the insect known as cicada. The cuckoo puts its eggs in with those of other birds to be raised by them. <
The cuckoo is one of several kinds of birds that lays their eggs in ither birds' nests. The host birds do not seem to notice that the cuckoo chicks are different, and treat them as their own.
