Ah, the Chew Chew call!!

This drove me mad during our 2006 camper van trip to eastern Oz. I would lie 
there in bed hearing this call at dawn and would throw on some clothes and try 
to track it down as soon as it got light enough - but then it always stopped!! 
I worked it out by a process of elimination as we heard it in several different 
places which had rather different sets of birds - there were only a few in 
common. Then I eventually clinched it by seeing a bird doing it during the day 
- but that was after about a fortnight of frustration!.

Certainly brings back memories!
