Fri 3highlightEastern Koel
Eastern end of Milner Street Prospect
For the third year in a row we have an Eastern Koel in Prospect. I heard it this morning and this evening for the first time this season. I am not a birdwatcher and I have never seen the bird, but the call is so distinctive that I have little doubt it's an Eastern Koel. I expect the bird will stay around for spring, as has been the case in previous years. Late at night and early morning is often the best time to hear it. I suspect it may "nest" in the large tree at the front of St Anthony's Greek Church.
