What the heck do we call the Koel?

Hi All,
After reading of the the reported Koel at Victoria Bridge, Richmond, I poped
down there yesterday and heard a Koel calling (I recognised the call after
hearing and seeing  it in Newcastle) for around ten minutes. I didn't have
the time to look further but it was on the East side of the river (opposite
side to the bike track) just upstream of the bridge. later like the other
person,  I pondered on the correct name, as it was reported as both the
Eastern and the Austrlian Koel. My old Simpson and day calls it the Common
Koel as does my Morcombe, Pizzey and Knight 8th Ed calls it the Eastern Koel
and the most recent Simpson and Day (2010) calls it the Eastern (Common)
Koel. If it is now properly called the Australian Koel?, does this mean that
it does not migrate to PNG and Indonesia?
Happy birding,
Patrick Scully
