A question for those wiser than I am. Do the Koels return to the same place?
There is a tendency in this discussion site for people to take ownership of Koels and even name them. – the ‘Mawson Koel’ etc. I too have been guilty of the same in previous years with the ‘Gungahlin
Koel’, albeit being purposely tongue in cheek because everybody else was claiming them.
But my question is not trivial. A Koel has been calling strongly behind my place (Ginninderra creek/Percival Hill) for about 3 weeks now. This year, it is regularly in the same Eucalypt a few hundred
metres away. I was glad that this year it was not directly behind my house, as it was ;ast year, as it begins koelling about 4.a.m.
So is it the same bird? That is my broad question. Do Koels return to the same place?
