Scary bird photo

On Thursday I took a photograph of a bird on a branch in my garden, without noticing the other bird flying past. The result was this scary-looking picture.

The bird in the tree is a female Asian Koel. The koel is a kind of cuckoo, so I am sure it is perched up there looking for a suitable nest in which to lay its egg.  March to May is the breeding season for the cuckoos (brood parasites) and crows (hosts), so it is quite possible that the bird flying past the lens was a jungle crow, and that the koel is sneaking in to the nest today.
