Following from Penny's note today, I went for a walk in inner city Brisbane (Red HILL - Ashgrove) this morning and came across two male Koels calling out in the open on the same dead tree. This was followed by a fly-past of three Channel-bills being chased by a couple of crows. Whilst following these, a small number of White-throated Needletails were hawking overhead. I thought their appearance always prempted a change of weather but it has been sweltering here in Brisbane all day with no sign of a change.
As Penny also points out, it is amazing how much birdlife you can find in the heart of big cities. Apart from the above cuckoos, there are resident Coucals (whoop-whoop-whooping) around here as well as the ubiquitous Brush-Turkeys which wander along busy streets in the early morn. In the parks along local creeks Superb Wrens, Cisticolas, Spice Finches as well as the usual Butcherbirds, Currawongs, Blue-faced H/e, and the like are always present.
