Cuckoos

The Saint Helena Cuckoos (Nannococcyx psix) are an extinct bird species that was endemic to the island of Saint Helena, where it probably could be found in forest areas. Their existance was confirmed by a single humerus. Their extinction was a result of deforestation on the island in the 18th century.

Compared to other cuckoos, this cuckoo was relatively small.
