Pacific Koel - Eudynamys orientalis James Ray 2018-12-03 Faulconbridge, Blue Mountains City Council, New South Wales, Blue Mountains (Australia) (480 m) alarm call -

It was being harassed by red wattlebirds, a pair of which live in the area with a juvenile that fledged a month or so ago. It was on the ground behind a Grevillea
