Hi Birders,
This past Easter Weekend I travelled out to Lightning Ridge with my family and 
camped out along the Narran River. Early Sunday morning my father and I went 
for a birding walk and followed the call of an Olive backed Oriole. You can 
imagine our suprise when we found, not an Oriole, but a Spiny cheeked 
Honeyeater calling and mimicing several birds. Included in its repertoire was 
Mudlark, Wedge tailed Eagle, Oriole, and several other calls I didn't recognise.
Has anyone else ever found this species to mimic.
