Asian Koel (Eudynamys scolopacea). It belongs to the family Cuculidae. This bird is found all over India. Male koel is dark black and hence resembles the crow. There is a sloka(verse) in Sanskrit,the literal meaning of which is as follows. Crow is black,Koel is also black. What is the difference between crow and koels? Once spring arrives crow ia crow and koel is koel).

The Asian koel is quite similar to its European relative, but with some differences. This cuckoo actually works as a team; the male distracts the crow guarding the nest, encouraging the crow to attack and pursue him, which leaves the nest unattended and ready for the female to deposit her egg. Sometimes, she will remove one of the crow's eggs while laying her own egg in the nest. Only when the female is done will she give a characteristic call and the pair will depart the scene. Also, the koel chick does not always kill its foster siblings, but nonetheless, it still imposes a heavy toll on the reproductive success of the crow.
