Hi Bert - I've only seen Tawny Crowned Honeyeaters once, but they have a 
beautiful call, and much to my surprise also mimc other birds.  I was 
disappointed that my recently purchased 7th edition of the Simpson & Day Field 
Guide doesn't mention that the honeyeater mimics.  It does mention mimicry for 
the Yellow Throated Scrubwren, which is the only bird other than the Lyrebirds 
which I have heard copying other birds' calls.
