This bird is usually heard at the beginning of summer - it has a loud, repetitive call.

You get a bit sick of it after a while Monica - you'd just wish it would rain or he'd go annoy someone else!!! Thanks.

Wish I could hear this loud repetitive call of theirs! They are awfully pretty! Love their red beady eyes! Thanks Rob, great pic like always!

Yes - we usually just hear them calling Shirley - & it certainly carries around the hills. Thanks.

Thanks lyndee - I love the eye colour!
Thanks chickie.
Thanks pumpkin.
They are a sub-species of the Cuckoo oddio, so you might have something similar.
Thanks Meadowhawk.
Thanks pg - no, sorry I don't know what the seed pods are from. They live on forest fruits & seeds so it could be anything.
Apparently they go as far south as Sydney, so you'd miss out I'd say. Thanks chookie.

I've never seen this bird, rob, but then again I live in the South! He seems to have quite long tail feathers. Thanks rob:)

Very cool bird Rob. Do you know the seed pods that are in the photo?

Meadowhawk

Interesting bird! Unusual markings - love that eye!

oddio

The markings on the feathers is far from common. Good pix, robryan.

Not very colorful but very beautiful!

Well isn't he a unique looking bird? Wouldn't have much color if it weren't for his eyes.
