Hi Bruce,
Whilst several members of Gerygone have very similar calls, the Brown Gerygone sounds not even remotely similar to the White-throated Gerygone. If you think you heard a White-throated Gerygone, well then you probably did. So the substance of your question falls down. The Western and Mangrove Gerygones sound similar, so consider those possibilities if they occur there, but not the Brown Gerygone.

Hi All
This is a call to some of our north side Sydney birdos or possibly Alan Morris or Lauris Hopkins if she is still out there somewhere.Yesterday I was doing some birding around Warriwood wetland on the north side of Sydney harbour when I heard what I was sure was a White-throated Gerygone calling , it only called once but it had that distinctive falling leaf call, I looked for the bird without any luck and after a while became unsure as there are Brown Warblers in the area and I have never recorded a WTG in this area, or in fact this close to the coast anywhere in Sydney. Heaps out west but none around my way!---Anyone like to offer a comment?
