Recovered young cuckoo freed


This 18 August 2017 video shows the freeing of a young cuckoo after rehabilitation, in the Ooijpolder nature reserve in Gelderland province in the Netherlands.

This young bird grew up in a reed warbler nest in the Ooijpolder. It was the first young cuckoo ever to be on a webcam. Unfortunately, the cuckoo fell out of the nest, damaged by storm. It was brought to a bird hospital. The cuckoo’s reed warbler foster parents started a new nest. Meanwhile, the young reed warblers have fledged.

And now, after convalescence, the young cuckoo has fledged as well.
