For my sins, a Koel has taken up local residence.  While listening to its 
plaintive tones at about 4.30 this morning, the following  wording (hopefully 
more or less original) came to mind, to the tune of The First Noel...

The first Koel
The angels did say
Came to torment poor birders
In their beds where they lay

In their beds where they lay
a-counting the sheep
On a hot summer's night
When they couldn't sleep

That's all I managed before the fiend went quiet.  Further additions welcome.
