Last Sunday before dusk at Reedy Lake, myself and Ian heard an unusual call coming from a small raodside swamp. It sounded like a "coughing two syllable call". Would anyone have a clue what it might have been? Whatever was making this call, was hidden in some small shrub. My guess is that it may have been some variation in the call of one of the crakes.

That four word description says "Red Wattlebird" to me. How would you say this call was different?
