HI all

We have had lots of Koel's around Sydney recently, no surprises here. However, 
we have one resident present, being brought up by a Pied Currawong. This bird 
was displaying some unusual behaviour, sitting on the ground, fanning out it's 
feathers as if suntanning. It was in full sunlight, on very warm ground.
We have seen this type of behaviour from Brown Cuckoo Doves before, but never 
from a Koel.

Any thoughts as to why the bird behaves this way?
