Have noticed the resumption of Koel calls in rather muted fashion in the dawn chorus in Griffith.  Also experienced what might be described as incomplete calls in Goulburn at friends house where there had been a lot of activity up to early part of January. Question is am I hearing really tired Koel already over the breeding cycle or could this be young Koel trying its vocal chords?  Goulburn one definitely sounds like a beginner given the sundry attempts at typical Koel call then into the raucous shriek as if a choir boy whose voice has just broken!  Seriously how do young Koels get together (or do they) for migratory purposes and how do they learn their calls since their foster parents are not models?
