koel sighting

This morning at about 5.30 (Qld time), while walking the dog, I heard a male koel calling. I spotted him in a large, but not tall tree, along with 2 females. The females were hopping from branch to branch and giving a call like a screech in response to the male "ko-el" call. When they perched for a moment on a branch they each slightly raised their wings then lowered them. It is rare for me to spot koels as they are usually high up in tall trees, heard but not seen. Of course, no camera to hand.
