Crested Bellbird
Endemic...in drier parts of
Australia...call is a distinct,
high-pitched bell-like song.

Range has contracted due to
habitat destruction.
The parrot and fantail along with the bellbird 
create many tunes in this vale.  
Whistles and shrieks… 
one syllable notes 
or the currawongs’ melodic wail.
