One sang today late morning from bush in the northwestern area of Tahuna Torea nature reserve in Auckland. There was a full song followed after a minute or so by several downwardly-slurred calls from the same area. I heard one calling there in mid November 2017.

A shining cuckoo gave a part song (downward slurred note) at Tunnel Gully, Upper Hutt, this morning
There were at least 4 long-tailed cuckoos calling up Mt Climie Track (one seen well). Also kereru, falcon, rifleman, bellbird, whitehead, tomtit etc (full lists on eBird/Atlas)

Haven't noticed them calling here lately (just begging fledglings) but heard one calling this morning, near Pirongia.

I heard one calling yesterday at my parents place in Morrinsville. First I’ve heard there all year. Although they’ve heard one on and off all summer.
