Pallid Cuckoo it is. From the photos it is a bit hard to give an accurate age.

I went to Jerrabomberra wetlands this evening and saw another cuckoo that I was not able to identify with certainty.

It was about the same size as Magpie-larks. Below are 2 links to digiscopies I took.

My guess is that it's a immature Pallid cuckoo, but any confirmation or other suggestions are welcome.
