Channel-Billed Cuckoo Melville Park Drive , Berwick.(S.E Melbourne suburbs )

Yesterday Mon 30th Nov. I saw my first Victorian Channel-Billed Cuckoo.

It was seen perched and calling in "exotic" trees of a Retirement Village where 
I work and was brought to my attention when mobbed by the local Magpies at 

As it is also known as Stormbird or Rainbird I thought that this was 
appropriate with the tropical type weather that we have been experiencing 

I have often wondered, after the comments about the Mt.Eliza bird many years 
ago, if one would ever turn up in 2 Moreton Bay Figs nearby. One on Melville 
Park Drive and the other around the corner on the Princes Highway.

I will check these in the coming days.
