First proven breeding record of the Great Spotted Cuckoo (Clamator glandarius, Coucou geai) North of the High Atlas: two young fed by a Magpie at Tahanaout near Marrakech, 2nd June (Brahim Bakass, Facebook).
None of the few claimed breeding data North of the Atlas were accepted (Heim de Balsac & Mayaud 1962, Thévenot et al. 2003), and Barreau & Bergier (2000-2001) considered the species as a migrant near Marrakech: they could not find any breeding evidence.
The only breeding records are from the Souss and the regions nearby (in Magpie nests) but it is possible that the species also breeds in the Oued Ad Deheb region (e.g. near Awserd) in Brown-necked Raven nests.
