I heard another Koel in Sydney, this time at home in Seven Hills (western Sydney). Was there a flood of Koels records along the east coast this week?


Also I heard for the first time a New Holland Honeyeater calling from our backyard. NHHE’s though abundant along Sydney’s coastline are not typical in shale environments where I live and it was giving out its alarm calls when a passing raptor (did not see the raptor but it probably was our local Peregrine passing over). However, there is a resident population of NHHE”s about 2-3 km away at Prospect Reservoir (which is also not their typical habitat).
