5am wake up call

Hi I have just moved into a new home in the coastal suburbs of Sydney and I am awoke every day just before daybreak by a small grey coloured bird that emnits a call that is three bell like sounds. The bird appears to travel around the neighbouthood marking its territory with similar calls. It appears to be one of a pair. Can anyone help identify it please? Thanks

Hi Alix
The only grey bird I can think is likely to be your bird is the Grey Shrike Thrush.

Its call is quite melodious (reflected in its Latin name).

Hope that helps.

Denis
