Bird calls / bird song
Northern Shrike-tit

Both these samples are from the same bird at Drysdale River in June 1983. Sample 057-090 is one version of the territorial advertisement call (there are other versions) or song.There is a lot of background in the recording including a Peaceful Dove that seemed to be synchronising with the shrike-tit! Sample 057-080 I call "chatter" - there was another bird present but what the function of this call is I don't know.
