This afternoon at home in Seven Hills (west of Sydney), I noticed for the first time a Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike mimicing the calls of both Varied Triller (interesting, as I have not yet seen a varied Triller in Sydney yet) and Olive-backed Oriole.  Have never heard any of the Cuckoo-shrikes mimic other birds before, but this adds to the list of the bird species that I have noticed mimicing other bird calls.
