This morning I heard a Channel-billed Cuckoo call just the once down
Haig Park way, perhaps somewhere near Sullivan's 'Creek'.

I grabbed the camera and set off.

I heard a family of Australian Ravens, along with some smaller players,
going beserk.


So I stalked the noise carefully and was guided to the fox that was
running around on the ANU oval next to Barry Drive being harrassed by
said Australian Ravens and sundries.

There was no sign of the Cuckoo.
