Princeton's WordNet

  1. Cuculiformes, order Cuculiformes(noun)

    cuckoos; touracos; etc.


  1. Cuculiformes

    The near passerine bird order Cuculiformes traditionally included three families as below: ⁕Musophagidae - turacos and allies ⁕Cuculidae - cuckoos, coucals, roadrunners and anis ⁕Opisthocomidae - Hoatzin However, the taxonomy of this group is now controversial. The Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy raises the Musophagidae to an order Musophagiformes which may or may not be warranted. The Hoatzin continues to be enigmatic; it is probably best regarded as a distinct, monotypic order, especially if the turacos are also considered one. The coucals and anis are sometimes considered subfamilies of the Cuculidae, or otherwise assigned to families of their own, the Centropodidae and Crotophagidae respectively.
