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


I don't think the word "unusual" fits Red Wattlebird very well!

It wasn't harsh like a Wattlebird, more of a polite cough:  Heh Heh.  To
me it sounded as if there were two simulaneous tones:  the lower
coughing tone and a higher pitched sound which had more of the plinking
quality of a frog.  The bush in question was in water.  I couldn't tell
whether the call was avian or amphibian.
