The Emerald Cuckoo, a bird, is warm blooded and shrouded in feathers over body and wing. It has a beak and no teeth. The Emerald Cuckoo's heart consists of four chambers, just like in humans.
Emerald Cuckoos reproduce by laying eggs. The eggs are hard shelled and produced in a nest built by the parents. Like most species of cuckoos, they raise their own young.
