Kuching garden. Suddenly I heard a thud. It sounded like something just hit the front wall. I went to check the front porch and to my surprise saw a bird was struggling to fly after after hitting hard the front wall next to the door. When I picked it up it was still conscious. After about 30 minutes of handling, I found that it was strong enough to fly free. I released it after having some good shots it. Checking on various sources and references I think it is the Plaintive Cuckoo (Cacomantis merulinus). It was my first lifer.
