One I always struggle to spot
These birds have a wonderful three note call, which it repeats in increasing tones up to 10 times, one I grew up hearing. But they have always eluded me as they tend to sit well hidden away. So chuffed that I got this shot.

The three note call sounds a bit like brainfever - hence the name the brainfever bird.
