We've had a Koel fledgeling since Monday last week - so about 10 days, fed by Red Wattlebirds. The first one in years.
Both male and female Koels were still calling on the weekend.

The fledgling at my place is sticking around. I first noticed it on 26 January. Yesterday it came right down in our yard drinking from a water barrel and then spent the rest of the day in a Chinese elm in our yard. When the RWB foster parents are nearby, they are very protective and growl at me. I feel like explaining to them the facts of life, but I suspect they wouldn’t be interested.
Update: Just in the last half hour, I have my first Koel fledgling for the year in my GBS Site. Indeed only 1 metre from my bedroom window. Calling that persistent slow “weep” call. It is mostly grown to independent size and with a tail is more than half grown, so not a very recent nest leaver. Being my first notice I expect it has come from outside my GBS area. Are Koel chicks noisy in the nest or only when they leave?
Same for me so far, even though there are several adults yelling here every morning and have been for weeks. I have not seen any young ones this year. Not that I am out that much but I am home for most of every day. Only a small number of RW nestings and only RW chicks.
We have not had a Koel fledgling in our bit of Turner. What is more, the very large amounts of Koel noise we had over Christmas/New Year has now subsided substantially. I was attempt to insert 'music' but that would be poetic licence.
