Little Shrike-thrush, Colluricincla megarhyncha

  • One of the most commonly heard calls in the lowland tropical rainforest is that of the 'Little Shrike-thrush', They have beautiful whistles, based on a musical, loud and sudden "tu-ee, wot-wot-wot"

  • The little shrike-thrush is neither a shrike nor a thrush.

  • This is a medium-sized bird that is fairly plain olive-brown on top and paler on the face. It is often hard to see.

  • The colouration of the wet tropics subspecies of this tropical Australian bird also results in its other common name of 'Rufous Shrike Thrush'.

  • It is sometimes heard more than seen.

  • It lives in rainforest, coastal woodland, swamps and mangroves

  • Sightings are frequent on the lawn in front of the Guest Lounge at Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodges
