An Asian Koel (Eudynamys scolopaceus) spotted from the balcony on the last day of the COVID-19 Circuit Breaker (stay-at-home) in Singapore.

Hey, not my fault if noisy wildlife decides to pop up near to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Asian Koels are brood parasites of local Crows and are locally 'notorious' for making loud calls (sometimes early in the morning) that can be heard over traffic noise.

@sohkamyung funny I was just looking up this bird few days ago because I got few living right next to me and they are really loud. I find it quite pleasant but my girlfriend is a bit annoyed ๐Ÿ˜…

How can this small bird be so loud!

@Wraptile No idea why it likes to be so loud either ๐Ÿ™‚

On the bright side, it's calls are not as raucous as those by the Collared Kingfisher. There's a resident pair near my place and their 'eee-eeee' calls in the early morning are definitely not as nice to hear.
