Alan Morris posted this response recently to a facebook photo of a koel, and I confirmed with him that its ok to post it.
'The parent Koels usually re-connect with their young at this time when they wean them off the largely insect diet of the Wattlebird and Friarbird hosts and onto the fruit diet of figs, berries, cherry tomatoes and other fruits! They then depart northwards with their families. Channel-billed Cuckoos do the same.' Alan added to me that HANZAB has this info. However there are observations of small flocks of CBCuckoos, up to 15 birds migrating north and south in NSW! Small flocks of 6-9 birds is more typical.
