Koo -o-eel ……Eastern Koel

Koel1Many people in the Tura area have probably heard the incessant … ‘Koo-o-eel ‘of the male Eastern Koel call day & night.Heard this one as I came off the beach near the golf course ,very well hidden in the coastal Banksias.Was able to watch him for 20 minutes.

The Koel is a large parasitic  cuckoo,arriving in October and usually gone by March they usually lay eggs in Red Wattle bird nests in this area .
