Could your friend's bird be a female Koel perhaps?

The species isn't listed in Steve Wilson's book, which I take to mean it has never been recorded in the ACT. 

The attached screenshot comes from Birdata for Pheasant Coucal, zoomed to show that it also hasn't been seen anywhere close to the ACT.  .

Hi All – A friend of mine sent me an email today saying he found a Coucal climbing through a Japonica Bush in the yard of his home in Dickson. My research shows there has been no sightings of this species in this area over the past twenty years and the closest sighting area to us in the coastal areas around Sydney. Any comments from members on their experience with this bird in this area?
