Would have been nice to have a bit more of the sound, but I think it is a tui if the song was a bit more rapid I would say bellbird, but then it could have been a number of things like a hawk also.

That's not what I was expecting! Well it's not a wader as far as I know. But it might be a Brown Quail.

I'm not sure if I have heard this bird before, maybe in Oz?
But knowing the penchant you guys have :twisted: for all things around Auckland and especially Tiritiri,
I think it's a Brown Quail call.
Really, it's too bad, when are we S Islanders going to get something you lot don't have? I'll get it
wrong of course but at least I'll feel wanted.

Part of the flight call of a tui? It sounds a bit high pitched but I can't place this with anything else with which I'm familiar, so I'll go with Tui.
