Koel at Baranduda

5.30 AM … very clear and close calls of a KOEL.
Another new critter for us to confirm.
Can someone else confirm if they hear or see the bird please.

Glen Johnson replied

Very possible – they have a distinctive call (see links below) not sure whether Albury’s summer migrant is back there in town yet.

I haven’t heard of Koel recorded in Baranduda previously?   
Ps Everyone keep their eyes and ears out for Regent Honeyeaters – and look for bands.  We received photo’s of one of the 2013 released Chiltern birds feeding on flowering red bottlebrush in garden in Eldorado (from Cup day).

Yes, it woke me about 5.30 and heard again about 7.30am. But I hadn’t heard it ever before and didn’t know what it was.
