Daily Question – 134

“Officers and Sepoys”, a board game, a variation on Fox & Geese introduced in the 1860s to play on the hype of the 1857 war.

This is the common hawk cuckoo, also known as the papeeha, which was given a very evocative nickname. What name? The writer pictured here wrote a book with the same name.
