This lurida (Rainforest or Red Boobook) began calling by our house at Topaz at 2250 and carried on constantly until 2354. It was a bright moonlit night and I was surprised it was so vocal, calling about 20 times per minute or once every 3 seconds, so it gave over 1000 calls in that time frame, an unusually protracted bout. Right at the end a second bird joined in also close by, and from the higher pitch i think a female, so he had success in attracting one and the calling stopped shortly after.
