Confusion is introduced with the terms quyu and bage (literally, "eight songs"), both of which designate the myna bird (Acridotheres tristis).(65) The general size of the cuckoo and myna are comparable, some species crested, both possessing human-like vocalization.(66) The myna is mostly terrestrial, whereas the cuckoo is arboreal; the majority of Chinese myna species reside in southern China, while the cuckoo ranges all over.(67) Unlike the case of the hoopoe, where bisyllabic vocalization played a role, the confusion of the cuckoo with the myna is at the textual level only.
