Julian  -  One of the currawong calls around here sounds rather like a koel.
It is a 'koo-rerl' with a slightly longer second syllable.  I think this is
the most likely explanation.  I think all the koels have been gone for a
couple of weeks.  g

at my grandparents house in holder, I heard what sounded like a koel  
in the front yard while I was sitting on the porch reading. I walked  
round the corner and it called again. I looked to my left and there  
was a currawong in the tree. I searched the surrounding trees for the  
Ko-el noise maker. nothing. as I went back to my book it came again.  
could it have been the currawong calling? was the PC a hybrid or did  
the koel lay it's eggs in the PC's nest and the young PC learnt the  
call? the koel could have been hiding but When I double-checked, I  
came up with the same results.
Has anyone got Ideas?
