Unidentified bird call

Post by Perrorist » 09 Jan 2018, 18:25

Every year at around this time I hear this bird, but cannot find it on a CD I have of Eastern Seaboard bird calls:

It sounds like a Butcher Bird to me but not certain. I see them around all the time but rarely hear them.
They seem to be widely spread in the SE.

I thought it was a butcher bird, too, but I couldn't match that sound to the ones on the disc I have.

I listened to a few recordings of different butcher birds, and wondered about the pied butcher bird.
This one is from Darwin, however.

That recording adds support to it being a butcherbird. I'll keep looking. Thanks, DW.
