Two Asian Koels(Eudynamys scolopaceus), one male and the other a female, have found their way into the bird feeder. They come for a feed off it frequently, but never together so far. The female Koel looks very different to the male, I'll be able to show you soon. This bird can be considered a flagship species, as it's bound with local culture. The male Koel's distinctive call for a mate is heard around every April, and it's April when Sinhalese-Hindu new year is celebrated. So, it is said that the male birds call is indeed the message of new year arriving.
An interesting fact about Asian Koel is that the female lays eggs in crow's nests, hence making it a brood parasite.
