Hi Nick (and others),

I did record the bird but it was too distant to confirm it was a cuckoo dove. Here is the ebird link if you want to access it: (note that the first note of each call was not picked up in the recording).

BTW, the cuckoo dove (if it is indeed one) was calling again this morning, once again the distinctive doo-co-wUP call but it was even further away and it was not picked up in the recording at all.

Simply record the call. Then we know.

Hi all,

Yesterday morning I heard what I am fairly certain was a brown cuckoo dove from my back deck in Griffith, calling from somewhere in a private garden a few houses away. The bird called approximately 30 times over the course of 5 minutes and was probably less than 100 metres away, but unfortunateIy it was not visible from my garden.

Earlier today I went on a walk around Griffith, Red Hill (the suburb) and Forrest to try to relocate it, but to no avail.
