Little (Rufous) Shrike-thrush

Wot-wot-wot! These birds have quite a striking call which carries. I've heard their call before but have never managed to visually match the bird to the call. Fortunately I heard and then spotted this bird calling and took this photo. Not the best photo I'm sure but satisfying to marry a call to a specific bird. My thanks to a friendly birder/volunteer at MCP for identifying the photographed mystery songster!

 

Scientific name: Colluricincla megarhyncha

Sex: Unknown

Location: Mary Cairncross Park, Maleny, Australia.
