The article: Maller, C.J. & Jones, D.N. 2001, ‘Vocal behaviour of the Common Koel Eudynamys scolopacea, and implications for mating systems’, Emu 101: 105–112. (cited in the GBS Report) just might help, although I don't think it said much about juveniles.
I would suggest that young Koels probably do not learn their calls at all. It is probably entirely (or almost entirely) instinctive.
