Eric, the list server seems to have removed the attachment. Are you able to 
upload it somewhere? and are good places to upload 
sound samples.

Gidday All,

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with this bird call please? It's from 
Magnetic Island, north Queensland and only calls pre-dawn, except once this 
afternoon after the sun had set. I recorded this this morning, and the mp3 is 
cobbled together from several recordings I made. It has been calling every 
morning for about six weeks now. It is ventriloquistic and shy. I know all the 
main calls of my usual backyard mixed flock of small birds, but this one has me 
stumped. It often calls in association with a Little shrike-thrush.

The call of interest is the two-note whistle repeated throughout.

Any help appreciated
