what is this?

As a total novice i have no idea what this is. I think it is a baby as the wattle birds were feeding it. I  was at Bream Beach on the south coast of NSW

Real nice photos you have there, TracyK. Koels of any kind are usually extremely difficult to get close to, an frequently lurk right up in the trees!

The fact sheet was spot on. It was as if it was the exact bird i had seen. The wattle birds were working feverishly just to keep up a continous food supply and even after it sat in the tree it continued to call for more food.

Thanks to all who replied. Most informative site
