Hi Everyone,
Kiran Krishna says that the magpies in his area are getting good at
imitating Koels. Where I live at Heathcote, in southern Sydney, it's the
Indian Mynas that sound like Koels. The volume is much lower but, unless you
listen carefully, you'd swear there was a Koel calling in the distance.
