Yesterday I was privileged to be on a nature walk on the Royal Melbourne Golf Course.

A bird (which I could not locate) was giving a mournful beep-beep, apparently from the top of a gum tree but it may have been ventriloqual and lower down.

It was rather like a slightly higher-pitched and curtailed Little Grassbird call.

Any ideas?  My best guess is a Spotted Pardalote with laryngitis.
