The Czech Society for Ornithology has named the cuckoo the Czech Bird of the Year 2010. There are an estimated 35,000 to 75,000 cuckoo pairs in the Czech Republic, but their numbers have been falling for reasons that are as yet unknown to ornithologists. The decision to honour the cuckoo was motivated by a decrease in numbers of the species, as well as the fact that 2010 is the European Year of Biodiversity.
