what CALL is that? (SEQ)

Subject: what CALL is that? (SEQ)

near Woodford, SEQ

A single call, repeated at intervals, as follows:
One long descending but almost piercing pheeeew, then a gap of one or more minutes, then the call repeated... pheeeew, then gap - call - gap - call -- etc. NOT a Fan-tailed Cuckoo -- a clearer, steadier call. More ?echoey; more 'eerie'... The bird moved between the trees during this time, but was never seen. After about fifteen minutes it was heard no more.

Occurred along a bird-rich streamside corridor, in the midst of mixed rural land -- dairying, 'hobby-farm' blocks, small towns, then further off, state forest & pineapple farming; below the north end of the D'Aguilar Range where sub-coastal moist country meets the start of the dry, harder country running west through Kilcoy, etc.

Unseasonally mild-to-warm 'winter' days. The Dry has not yet arrived, either.
