John is right but the trend of increase in Canberra started well before
3 or 4 years ago. The GBS Report ("Canberra Birds: A Report on the first
21 years of the Garden Bird Survey") shows the increase started in year
18 (1998-99) and the increase has increased.

HI friends,

In the last three or four years koels have gone from being rare breeding
visitors in Canberra (one or two birds every summer) to being fairly
common. We have had five to six birds called in our nieghbourhood in
Fraser in Northwest Canberra. Can anyone tell me if there has been a
similar increase anywhere in Victoria?
