    I watched this Common Koel in our front yard for almost 30 minutes on
Christmas day,  during a very heavy thunderstorm which had a share of hail
in amongst the rain. The bird was just laying spreadeagled  on a shrub, and
every 45 seconds or so would flap and wriggle, obviously bathing. It would
bathe for about 20 seconds and then pause before repeating the action over
the 30 mins.,  and would occasionally raise its' head to allow rain to fall
into its' mouth. All together a fascinating half hour.
