Early Koels?

Column 8 in today's Sydney Morning Herald has an item about the early
introduction of daylight saving, in which a reader from Epping (a Sydney
suburb) is quoted as saying: "The benefit of the early introduction this
year is that the koel calls now at 6am, not 5am."

It's not clear whether the reader has actually been hearing the Koel
already - although it seems to be implied he has. Are there any records of
Koels in Sydney yet?
