A golfing friend told me story about a Koel she routinely feeds with fruit.  This Koel brought a small fledgling into the garden and proceeded to feed it as it kept on growing – now quite a large beautiful golden bird. She wondered if this is an uncommon behaviour on the part of a male bird? She knows that is usually the Red Wattlebird that raises Koel chicks.

Has anyone seen similar?

Murrumbidgee golf course is currently host to hundreds of Wood Ducks and chicks of all sizes. Three Black-fronted Dotterel returned last week after long absence.
