The Asian Koel Eudynamys scolopaceus is an obligate brood parasite commonly known to parasitize open nests of various passerines. However, in the Philippines, no information on the Asian Koel's hosts is available. We present the first record of an Asian Koel parasitizing the cavity nest of a Coleto Sarcops calvus, at the Subic Watershed Forest Reserve, Luzon, Philippines. Our findings provide important insights into the species' brood parasitism in the Philippines and within its range.
