Oh dear, I don't know what you mean. I can't see anything that begins that way and I haven't yet been able to listen to Spook's clip.
Thinking about it, I think it is probably a tui, LongRidge (you don't much like them, do you?]. I think the sound quality is about right, listening to links with tui calls on them, and I don't think it can be a Rosella. If it were something that brightly coloured I think I'd see it when it is in the broken pine, and also I have never seen one rosella by itself, there always seem to be at least a pair.
Hope you folk get to read this, the link seems to have somehow dropped out of "Your Place" but I can still find in in "My Topics". Anybody know why it has dropped out?

LongRidge... how could you??
The Tui is one of the more beautiful birds to look at that New Zealand has! Take a closer look as see the iridescent blues, purples and greens in their feathers, off set by that lovely white throat wattle. And its repertoire is really beautiful for a song bird that NZ has so few of!!
The Tui is a wonderful dawn chorus performer and is lovely to listen to of an evening. It really brightens my day to take time out and listen to the Tui's songs.

Note to self... must plant those two Bottlebrush trees and Kowhai seedlings to attract the Tui.

A tui has found the flowering flax bush outside the lounge window :). He must be keeping it a secret, because he hasn't made a sound. Either that, or he is very clever to know that I don't like the imitation reversing truck :) .

A less likely possibility is a young tui learning to sing. They can sound a bit like a rusty gate being swung backwards and forwards by an annoying child.

Having listened to the same two notes repeated ad nauseum for several weeks, I can quite agree with that description! Maybe a tui is what we have. I haven't spotted it yet, though.

Young tui don't fly about much. They spend a lot of their time hopping around in a favourite tree.

We have the 'Oo-cuck' bird here too. My best guess is Eastern Rosella or young tui. It has the tone of a Tui: Clear. But Merlin, the bird id app doesn't recognise it and looking up tui or Eastern Rosella, it doesn't sound like any of them. Our bush is so dense, we can only hear birds not see them. I have an MP3 file but I can't see where you upload it.

Could be a young tui, or depending where you live, a young bellbird learning to sing

Kōtare and Tūī, as far as I can hear, with a couple of other odd ones behind.

Thank you. Now I know what the cheep,cheep, cheep ,cheep is. Kôtare. The Chirrup at 24s, 42s and 55s probably a young Tui.. cheers. We're in Auckland South, there are apparently Bellbirds nearby at Hunua, but I've never heard one.

www.nzbirdsonline.org.nz/ has excellent recordings of birds and it's worth listening to anything likely in there.
