Most likely not. Juveniles don’t generally appear in association with adults. The juvenile call is a much less obvious simple repeated sound like “weep”. Sort of similar to a juvenile Red Wattlebird call. Just at a guess “a higher pitched call” is normally the shrieking, usually done by females.

Friends who hear three koels between Rankin and Chowne Streets in Campbell.   One seems to have a higher pitched call.  They wonder if that is a juvenile.
