Your guy must be enthusiastic! Mine do call - as per yesterday - but intermittently fortunately. When over at Durack we had a Horsefield's Bronze whose call was the exact opposite of the Koel's: getting louder going down rather than up. Cuckoos are secretive birds as though they know what they do with their eggs is not 'right'. Many smaller predated-upon birds know them too and hunt them away by buzzing and dive-bombing them.
The one that sets up his territory around here calls the storms, alright; AND the bright & sunny, the partly cloudy, the windy, the calm, the sunrise, the sunset, 3:00 in the morning, noon, 8:05 (am and pm) and every thing else!
So they only call when a storm is imminent? I was cruising up the Brisbane River yesterday, Oxley Creek to be precise (yes, I was working) and the Koel was calling.
The first roof-raising storm of the season hit yesterday afternoon. The bird has called it again?
Didn't know what you were talking about so googled. Guess what, I have seen the female around here and had no idea what type of bird it was - had tried describing it to various people but I'm not too good at that. I am so excited that these birds are visiting my place. Thanks Jan, solved my query.
Wish they really were storm birds. I have heard that name too.
wow where are you Jan - never heard of them caling heat - here in the Upper North Pine 8 generations for my family they are known as the storm birds - their calls predict the afternoon storms that farmers ( my family) both dread and await !
