First cuckoo

Last night I heard something from the stand of trees in the grounds of the nearby public school.  It sounded like a bird but I couldn’t work out which.

This afternoon I unmistakeably heard a channel-billed cuckoo in full voice.

Could it be the more subdued sounds last night were the marks of exhaustion after a long commute?

    I didn’t know the call so ended up here. It says the call may be made when the bird is perched, but mostly when in flight.

    I didn’t even know we had cuckoos in Australia.
