Hi Birders,

I looked up the Cuckoo web page and it is very informative, however it is a bit out of date. For all those Sydney Siders, Novocastrians and Wollongong-ites, you would be interested to know that neither the Red Wattlebird or the Little Wattlebird is listed as a host for the Koel Cuckoo!

While the Little Wattlebird was not confirmed as a host until the mid to late 1990s, the Red Wattlebird has been a known host for some time, and now days is the major host from the Mid-north Coast to the South Coast of NSW. There are plenty of published and anecdotal descriptions of Koels being hosted by wattlebirds.
