Been on my 'hit list' for far too long and I am pleased with this result.

Filmed recently in the 'Pilliga scrub' (central NSW)  it records a female bird going about its business.  Included is it making both its 'oom- oom' call and the one that sounds like a small engine starting up, not something I have seen before.  Also the process of looking for food that leaves the little circular 'platelets' that are often the first calling card that you see of these birds.  

Play the sound quite high, to hear the calls over the wind, as the frequencies the bird uses are not that much different.
