Loud bird call every morning

Hi everyone, 

I have just moved into a new unit in Gippsland in Victoria and have a bird in the tree outside my window that calls every morning at 5.45. I am wondering if anyone can tell me what bird it is and if it is seasonal/a mating call or if it will be a year round call.

Hi Leah,

That sounds like a friarbird call of some sort.

I suspect it will be seasonal rather than all year round (we usually see friarbirds here more in spring and summer), but I'm not sure.

Yes, sounds like a Noisy Friarbird. If so, they are breeding summer migrants to SE Aus, most but not all will move up to QLD after summer .
