I keep hearing this strange bird call, like that kids toy where you turn the tube around and the ball slides down and makes a weird downward wobbly whistle noise. Kind of like a cartoon sound when something is falling.
Ive heard it several places and I just don't know what it is or how to describe it any better and I never get an audio clip in time!
Any ideas based of my very imaginative description of what this could be? Thanks!

Hi Katherine, well done on the recording, sounds like an old fashioned penny whistle!!! Sorry no clue I but am sure someone will know.
