On slightly strange thing with the Pizzey and Knight App is that the Eastern
Koel has two calls, neither of which is of what we regard as the signature
"coo-ee" call.

I've been trying out the sounds on the Pizzey app and comparing them with
the Morcombe app here and there. Today I tried out the calls for Forest and
Sacred Kingfishers on both apps. What I've been finding with my random
sampling is that the collection of calls are often complimentary. If I had
to pick one app based on pictures, it would be Pizzey. If I had to pick one
on would be tough. David Stewart's recordings on Morcombe are
excellent, as everyone knows. (I particularly like it that the natural gaps
are left in place.) Then again, the Morcombe app often has a wide range of

So, if you can only manage to get one app...I'm not sure...but if you can
get both, you'll probably be glad of it.

Unless you don't like apps, in which case, you can stick to the field guide
transcriptions of sounds. "LIke a box of marbles falling down stairs
covered in maple syrup-EEEH-WOOH...falling away on the second note." That's
not quite fair, but I can't say that I've ever found a written sound
description of any help.
