Thanks for your reply Philip. Yes I did know that they copied other sounds, but what I found interesting was that the one copying the cuckoo didn't make any other sounds at all, just the cuckoo call. On the other hand, the other one copying the kookaburra primarily made bower bird noises with the kooka laugh just interspersed with all the other chattering sounds.......
