As I write only one Koel is calling around the house at present. Earlier
this morning about 4 were 'going off'  and I wondered why they feel impelled
to advertise their presence so obviously. Apart from courtship and agonistic
behaviour perhaps  the male sometimes calls to draw attention away from the
female who may be laying.  Channel-billed Cuckoos also let everyone know
they're around.
