I've just come back from Pearl Beach on the NSW Central Coast (safe from the fires) where I had seen over several days a large juv. Channel-billed Cuckoo being fed by two Pied Currawongs.
To be honest it was quite a funny observation. The juvenile Channel-billed Cuckoo much larger than both "parents", screaming out constantly for more food, literally attacking one of the Currawongs when it was being fed.
On a number of occasions the Channel-billed Cuckoo was flying around in circles, obviously practising for its immanent flight north!
