Do channel-billed cuckoos overwinter in the Northern Territory?

On July 9, a large long grey bird flew out in front of me on an early morning 
walk near the Kakadu Aurora Hotel just west of the South Alligator River. Given 
the size & colour, I can't imagine what else it could have been.  Even in the 
split second, I thought I would have seen the bill easily but did not.

Are they ever seen in winter in the Top End? (last week being my first visit).
