Recordist says Brown Warbler (Gerygone richmondii) can be heard in the background. The current scientific name of this bird could not be found.
Recordist's Notes: "The dominant bird in this recording I have been unable to identify. It may possibly be the Olive Whistler (Pachycephala olivacea), a shy uncommon inhabitant of the antarctic beeches at Lamington. I have never heard before the song taped in this cut.
This very attractive song, whistled in a minor key (?), comes 5 and again 15 second from the start of cut, and again at 51 seconds, the last time immediately following a Whipbird's song. In addition, call notes, presumably made by the unseen bird, are heard nearly throughout the cut." [Times mentioned in these notes were made prior to digitization and will differ slightly in the digitized cut. 16Oct2012 BMW.]
