Hi birders


Could anyone help identifying this call for me? Someone on Birds in
backyards posted the mp3 file, so the link will take you directly to the
recording. The person backs onto Ku-ring-gai National Park.


My thoughts are as follows: 


The first 6 seconds of the double note definitely sounds like a Noisy
Miner. Not sure what the call signifies though. Seconds 7-9 I am not
familiar with, but sounds somewhat similar to some kind of honeyeater
perhaps. Could well be the Noisy Miner again. 

The downward trill at 10-12 is a Fan-tailed Cuckoo.

Then at 13-15 the NM again followed by the second type of double note,
which kind of makes me think it is the same bird, hence Noisy Miner. 

19-21 sounds similar to an alarm call of Noisy Miner. 

22-23 again the second type of double note. 

I would discount the Superb Lyrebird. I cannot hear any calls in this
recording that would even remotely remind me of a Superb Lyrebird. From
my limited experience they usually incorporate a mechanical whirring
kind of sound and some other "typical" Superb Lyrebird specific calls. I
have forwarded to a knowledgeable birder friend of mine and his thoughts
were mostly Noisy Miner as well. We could well be wrong though.

Any thoughts? 




Kind regards
