Chirruping and Chiming Wedgebills

Thought these pictures might be an interesting comparison.

The first is a Chirruping Wedgebill seen at the Arid Lands Botanic Gardens in Port Augusta. It almost fell in the water but the patch of blue surprised me as I cannot see it mentioned in my bird guides.

The second one is a young Chiming Wedgetail seen between Coral Bay and Denham in WA. As you can see, the birds are very alike. However the calls are quite different and the locality helped.
