As I was walking on this road, I head this exceptionally load, clear and very 
strong call. There was also rustling in the leaf litter. I stood still and 
waited for the bird to present itself. This very small, dark brown bird popped 
out of the scrub. It had an erect tail and long legs for such a small bird. 
It's strut made me feel that it was one of those old fashioned wind-up tin 
toys. It saw me, let out a very load squark and flew off very low into the 
scrub with rounded wing tips. That was all I saw. Nothing but the Rufus Scrub 
Bird and now the Bristlebird matches my observation. If there are any 
recordings of these birds' calls, I'm sure I would be able to confirm whether 
my identification was accurate.
