The bird perched on its branch is a Greater Coucal.
It is a small tree with drooping branches, and grey-green leaves. The tree is very attractive when in full bloom from March to April. The flowers are large tubular bright yellow occuring in bunches of 5 to 10.
It grows in the wild in the desert areas of Rajasthan, Haryana, and Punjab.
But it is extensively planted as an avenue tree, as this one planted in Kolkata near my house.


The bird is Crow pheasantCentropus sinensis.  In Malayalam we call in Chemboth and it is a found on the coconut and banana plantations.


Yes …….but Greater Coucal is the alternative name of Crow
Pheasant.

Birdwatchers prefer to call this bird by the first name.


Is this the same tree that was called Tecoma argentea


   1. Tecoma argentea is not a synonym of Tecoma undulata.
   2. According to GRIN T. argentea is synonym of Tecomella undulata.
   3. Tecoma argentea is synonym of Tabebuia aurea (GRIN).


In Haryana Villagers call it tidda midda. The bird of course is Crow Pheasant and is also known Kauchal.
