Psychologically: The cuckoo is in the dream a picture for the light warmth and superficiality, the Egozentrik and sexual irresponsibility of the dreaming. This meaning can be derived from the fact that the cuckoo is a bird in natura who lays his eggs in foreign nests and does not look after his brood. A cuckoo in the dream stands maybe also for a stranger who wants himself in the family hineindrängeln, or a foreign and unwelcome element in the emotional life. Old dream books understand him also as a promise of a long life.
