Hi All,

Have posted another 'mystery' bird-call on the BSQ Sounds
website<>I'm sure that it's
fairly common and I've heard it before but am having a
bit of a blank...could it be a Coucal? Have a listen and put me out of my

I'm still pondering on the previous posted call (the possible Powerful Owl)
but have had credible suggestions that it might be a 'distressed' Green
Tree Frog or a nocturnal Forest Kingfisher. Although I've received
suggestions that it could not possibly be an owl, I have heard from some
that juvenile owls do indeed have shrill-calls (although now I'm not sure
that it could only be a Powerful) and it has been suggested that Boobook
and Barking can also call in this manner.....

Over to you,
