This 2 Channel-billed chicks are being reared by a Raven.These huge cuckoos are the largest of all parasitic birds and so has to find large host species with eggs of a similar size  ...in this case the raven ,the chicks were already bigger than their carer !

They are a migratory species & breed in Australia in Spring & Summer.
