Hi Rod

In recent years I've been pretty keen to test the calls of SF compared with
LF. And over the past few seasons have tracked down many a variation on the
LF call suspecting that a SF would show itself, only to find LF.  A week ago
I was working on the Newnes Plateau in the western Blue Mountains and
encountered LF regularly, most deviating from the calls that I am used to
hearing on the Central Coast where I live. The last flycatcher call I
encountered during the week sounded very much like a LF, but turned out to
be a SF. I have heard SF in the past, which sounded different to LF calls,
but I suspect, from my own experiences, that the variation of call within
each species may make it hard to draw some general rules of thumb here.
