Pilotbirds and Olive Whistler certainly respond to call playback. I know
that Shy Heathwren also respond very well so can see no reason why
Chestnut-rumped Heathwren wouldn't. Make sure you have a proper Red-browed
Treecreeper call as some calls attributed to them are actually
White-throated. They will, from personal experience, react to WTTC calls if
the two species are close together. I haven't had too much time calling in
Bassian Thrushes but again, at the right time of year and in the correct
habitat, see no reason why they would not respond.

Does anyone know whether: Bassian Thrush, Pilotbird, Red-browed Treecreeper,
Chestnut-rumped Heathwren or Olive Whistler respond to recorded calls?
