That is the main suggestion, and looking at the field guide it seems a
real possiblity. I have never seen one, so the thought did not cross my

Yes, I nearly mentioned that it seems a little early for them, but a quick
glance at the birding-aus list (plus my own observations) suggest that we
can't take anything for granted regarding when or why birds (or other
creatures) do what they do. Whether it's climate change or other subtle
variations only birds can detect, who knows? By the way, just prior to
receiving your email, I received one from "Marion" on the South Coast
saying she could hear one as she wrote, so they may well be "early".
