I don't know about any of these. It would not be surprising if they did.
Then again it sort of depends what you mean by "respond to"...... Call back,
or do something else. I don't believe they respond to mimicry of themselves
by lyrebirds. Certainly the lyrebirds often copy Pilotbirds and quite
possibly also Bassian Thrush, Pilotbird, Red-browed Treecreeper & Olive

A Red Wattlebird appears to respond to playback of a recording of a Regent
Honeyeater mimicry of a Red Wattlebird. But it is hard to be sure I was
correctly interpreting a response.

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