rainbird in the garden

This morning i was working in my office and i heard a rustling sound. I stood up to look what made the noise. To my astonishment, there was a rainbird sitting on the lawn eating a snail. Half an hour later it began to rain. Amazing.
These birds are usually only seen when it is about to rain. The bird is known as Burchell's coucal - Centropus burchelli. It is incredibly beautiful.
