Female koel on palm berries.
Suburbans garden. Dry tropics.
Koels have a habit similar to cuckoos, laying their eggs in other birds' nests where they are raised by a surrogate mother. The Male koel is glossy black.
Excellent photo! I was in the Daintree a month ago and saw several males, but alas, got no decent photos.
