Following these Swift Parrots over the past week (more than I have ever encountered these birds previously). It seems to me that some of their calls are very much like those of Brown Treecreepers. I don’t recall that I have put Brown Treecreepers on any records, based on just calls, in a place or day that I have not also seen them. But there have been times when I believe I have heard Brown Treecreepers and not seen them where I thought the sound was coming from and so I wonder if I was actually hearing Swift Parrots, which would not have been in my thoughts. Given how hard it can be to see Swift Parrots, just a question I now have.
