Females usually arrive a little later, but are less likely to be detected. Might be here, might not be.  First female sighting will be of interest.

Is it all in the timing?

This morning I found the half shell of a Red Wattlebird's egg.

After hearing my first male Koel calling (both calls) across Darwinia Tce in Rivett around 8:15 this morning I followed up similar calling (mainly koel) this afternoon and found 2 males in the small park about 300 m from our house.


Celia Hindmarsh first reported a male calling from very close by a week ago on 2 October.  Interestingly this is a favourite location in the area for Koels and was the core area for 2 fledglings which spent over 3 weeks there in January/February.


Interesting also is that Celia’s is the only record so far this season on the eBird map, others of course may have been put on GBS charts etc.
