In east Kambah, the Koel's (and I mean a few male Koe'ls) are there from late November onwards until their departure (2 months later 'ish').
Only recently have I heard a female pipe up etc. Took them a while!

They love the casuarina, eucies and anything with a tall perch really of course. I've seen a neighbour throw I a rock in to a large tree where one male Koel was calling from in an attempt to make it move on. It did work. Along with that, a personal friend made it clear how annoyed they were with the resident male koel(s) just calling continuously into the night, and early in the morning.

I just don't think they're getting much love these days. Poor old Koel's.

Possibly same two were around my place yesterday morning, with a wattlebird, and another koel calling from a little further away. Not far to fly from your place to mine, but haven't heard one in my street today. Boobook calling from trees near Wanniassa Hills Primary 2 nights ago, at around 10pm, then again around 4am
