Thanks Mick. I had assumed that these birds moved north from our region in
the winter but it may be that they are both cryptic and silent at this time
of year and so are not as readily observed.

I was wandering around the Macquarie Hills and Cardiff areas (around the
former Pasminco site) (Lake Macquarie, central NSW) for work reasons this
week and flushed Coucals at two different spots. However, your report about
the Wildlife Atlas lacking local winter records intrigued me and so I had a
look through my personal records.
I found that I do have more summer records than winter ones.
Nevertheless, I had some local winter records including Lake Grahamstown
(late April), Ellalong (August), Kitchener (August), Mt Royal Road (June). I
used to regularly hear them in the summer months at Toronto (under Mt
Waring) but its been years now, since I've heard or seen them at this spot.
