It looks like an adult female koel to me because of the red eye, the white bill, and the spotting rather than stripe pattern on the back. Individual females can vary a lot in plumage color.

Hi All,


Could someone please ID the attached bird please. Sorry bird IDs are not my strong point at the moment - still learning. It flew into our backyard in Gordon this morning and stayed for some time. Not able to get any good photos as it was blocked by the vegetation.


Thanks in advance and Merry Xmas

Cheers Tony
