Brainfever Bird aka Common Hawk-Cuckoo juvenile (Hierococcyx varius)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_hawk-cuckoo
During their breeding season in summer males produce loud, repetitive three note calls that are well-rendered as brain-fever, the second note being longer and higher pitched. These notes rise to a crescendo before ending abruptly and repeat after a few minutes; the calling may go on through the day, well after dusk and before dawn
Captured in Dehradun, Uttarakhand State, N. India
