To all
I have found that by squeaking in the past, it is one of the best ways of enticing very shy or elusive birds out in the open. To me it has worked on Rufous Scrub-birds, Pilotbirds, Southern and Mallee Emu-wrens etc and can even be worked on Owls. Has anybody tried this with shy species like Western Whipbird and Noisy Scrub-bird out of interest? If nobody has, I would suggest to anyway to give it a go and see the results.
