Trying to ID this fellow in Armidale.

We have this friendly bird making a meal out of our strawberries. We could get a meter away from him for the photo. Could anyone ID his species please.

Hi Rob, looks like a female or juvenile Eastern Koel, also known by some as a Pacific Koel (a member of the cuckoo family of birds). Nice photo.

As always, happy to be wrong. Look forward to more photos from you.

Agree with Dale as Female or Juvenile Eastern Koel (One of the so called Storm birds you hear)
