Unusual visitor

Can anyone identify this unusual visitor to my Brisbane backyard? probably a juvenile.

Hi Sewal

Almost sure it's a Common Koel (light form female or imm female)not a Coucal. Cuckoo as Dennis said, but a parasitic one, summer visitor (Coucal is resident).

100% sure it's a female Koel. Check out its profile for a photo comparison: http://www.birdsinbackyards.net/finder/display.cfm?id=54

It's a Cuckoo - I'd agree a young female Koel.
