juvenile koel

The young koel that was the subject of my identification enquiry seems to be hanging around my backyard. This is the fourth day now. It sits in a tree calling continuously. There is sometimes a peewee (magpie lark) in the vicinity that seems to be trying to chase it. Each year I hear koels calling from tall trees nearby and occasionally one has been seen sitting on my fence, but this is my first sighting of a juvenile.
