To further contribute to this line. I have a friend with a video of a well-known bird at Ferntree Gully many years ago. 'Henry' lived halfway up the 1000 steps walk, a popular spot. In the video he was displaying and calling with the usual forest sounds but there were two additions to the normal. He had added 'Cmon hurry up' and 'Cooee'. Whilst the later can be heard in almost any patch of bush frequented by men, the former is probably specifically related to Henry's patch of turf.
