On Sturt st Alice springs today I saw an immature channel billed cuckoo 
drinking from a pool(from sprinkler, not rain!) attended by two torresian 
crows.  Does this mean the immatures overwinter here in Alice(adults left some 
time back, approx 4-5 weeks ago) or like immature waders or shearwaters they 
leave after the parents?

I am assuming they leave after the parents-individually?  There can't be that 
many immature channel billed cuckoos in Alice and as to why tehy would ever 
come here in the first place who would know?  We are not exactly a wonderland 
of fruit?
