We were delighted yesterday to have Pallid Cuckoos very actively
displaying, swooping, chasing, calling for a couple of hours around our
place at Elphinstone (about 50 kms South of Bendigo in Victoria).  There
were two flying together and a third occasionally joining in.

I would be interested in an explanation of what was the likely activity. 
Was it two males competitively courting the one female, a pair being
accompanied by an unsuccessful suitor, a pair with young from earlier
breeding, just a few hoons having fun, or what?
