A coupe is about 30 species of birds in the cuckoo family. All of them belong in the subfamily Centropodinae and the genus Centropus. Unlike many Old World cuckoos, coucals are not brood parasites. On the other hand, they have their own reproductive peculiarity: all members of the genus are varying degrees of sex-role reversed so that the smaller male provides the most of the parental care. At least one cougar species, the black coucal, and the polyandrous.Some species (Centropus phasianinus) have more males in incubation and parental care.Recent DNA evidence suggests that they should be raised to family status, as Centropodidae.
