For the past few days I've been hearing a bird call I don't recognise.  I can 
best describe it as "tok-eeeeeeeeee".  The "tok" is a lower note (DOH) than the 
"eeeee" (TI), and the "eeeee" has a rapid trill or vibrato. The call is 
repeated several times with a second or two gap, not quite regularly.  It seems 
to call between about 9am and 10am or so.  Sometimes two or three sets, a few 
minutes apart. Location: western Deakin.

Does that description suggest any obvious ID?  It's not a parrot, and it's 
quite loud.  I have not seen the perpetrator as it's in one of the local trees.
