We have one just outside our place in Kambah. I've heard it over the last week or so and glimpsed it briefly once. It was calling just a minute ago (9.30 pm) and I heard it when I was at the local petrol station about 4.00 am on Saturday morning.

They sure do. That is why they annoy so many people.

Good morning
Last (very wet) night at 9.30, the Holder Koel was calling for some time – very persistently and mournfully. I usually let our dog out about that time, and have never previously heard the bird calling then. Do Koels usually call at night? I have only heard this one in the day time before.
Thank you.
