I was woken at 3am this morning by an Eastern Koel, doing its ko-el, ko-el call.

Being from Victoria, this wasn't a familiar noise to me (then again,
at 3am nothing much is familiar to me). I've seen (and heard) Koels
before, but it wasn't a call that sprang to mind.  I had frankly no
idea what it was.  I made a quick sound recording on my iPod and
decided I'd figure it out when I woke. It didn't take me long.

I might add that in this case the PK birds app wasn't as useful as it
might have been.  It's been noted before that it's missing the ko-el
ko-el call recording.  Thank goodness for the birds in backyards app,
which has a recording, also by Fred Van Gessel.
