Was talking to long-time local farmer on Sunday and pointed out a Koel and how 
they're called storm-birds, to which he replied: "Yeah, Politician Bird - 
promise you everything and deliver nothing." :-)

A newie on me, so asked him how long they'd been called that around here and he 
said that's what a friend at nearby Murphys Creek decided to call them a couple 
of weeks ago.  If he came up with it himself, he's brilliant! 

And the way things are going, I think it will stick!
