Common koel a dinky-di Australian

"As reported by The Canberra Times on the weekend (''Liberals environment spokeswoman suggests eradication of native bird species''), Canberra Liberals environment spokeswoman Nicole Lawder has asked for the eradication of ''an imported pest, the common koel''. Of course all readers of this column know (for we have been running an occasional, intellectually stimulating series about the Canberra koels, obviously too intellectually demanding for Ms Lawder and her staff to follow) that the koel is not imported at all. It is an Australian native species and is at least as Australian as Ms Lawder."
