I am sending the mail directly to you since I do not think I can get to the chatline.

Yesterday I heard a sound like a puppy's yupping continuously and I thought a neighbour had a new puppy.  This morning the same sound continued and this time I found it was made by a Koel fledgling.  We have a number of Red Wattlebirds attracted by the dog's meatballs I give to Magpies.  A Wattlebird was there but I did not see it feeding the fledgling.  As it flew a short distance away I heard an adult E. Koel calling and the fledgling seemingly flew to that direction.  Afternoon I heard the sound coming from a tree (he hides very well) and saw him/her and nearby I also saw a Red Wattlebird.  They were hanging around for a while and as the Wattlebird left the fledgling followed.  I did not see the fledgling fed by any birds.  Although we have a lot of yellow plums (planted by birds, I don't know what kind) I did not see the fledgling feeding on them.
