Climate change-mediated range shifts have been well illustrated for a range of avian species. Here, we report on a new distribution site of the Common Koel Eudynamys scolopaceus in Qinglong Manchu Autonomous County, Hebei Province, China. This site lies about 700 km beyond the previously traditional northern limit of the species' range. Based on publications and birding records of Cuckoos in China, we found that 8 of 17 species had extended their known distribution ranges northward or westward since 1976.
