How about six species of cuckoo in one day on a 
1.25 acre block?

Saturday 9th Jan 1993.

1. Channel-billed Cuckoo, three flew over the house calling.

2. Common Koel, calling and being chased around the yard
    by Blue-faced Honeyeater.

3. Pallid Cuckoo, calling from mango tree.

4. Brush Cuckoo, calling from rainforest patch.

5. Pheasant Coucal, calling from a tree at the back of

6. Horsefield's Bronze-Cuckoo, calling from top of tall gum tree.  

All birds seen after first hearing them call.

Now wouldn't that drive you Cuckoo!
