    Please ID this bird

    I shot this from my backyard on Monday. I don't see this one around much!

    Reckon it's a female Common Koel. Some that get woken by these before sunrise wish they weren't common.
    CAP's photo shows the colour of the "juvie."

    Yep, spot on Mark

    A female Common Koel.

    They arrived here last week, and have certainly made their presence felt (heard), particularly in the wee small hours.
