Psophodes occidentalis 1
The chiming wedgebill (Psophodes occidentalis), sometimes referred to as chiming whipbird, is a species of bird in the family Psophodidae. It is endemic to Australia. The chiming wedgebill and chirruping wedgebill (Psophodes occidentalis) were considered a single species until as late as 1973, when they were separated due to marked differences in their calls.
The chiming wedgebill makes a cooing sound during mating.
