Birdlife SA has got quite a few birdcall for sale as ringtones but I didn't see any Pearlies on there.

You can also try the Xeno-Canto website. They've got loads of birdcalls. Think there's only Pearly on there but it was recorded in Gambia, so I'm not sure if it is exactly the same as our local 'dialect'.

I just have to share this! Taken this weekend on friends' farm. Two young pearl spotted owlets sitting and calling mom - almost the whole day. Lovely photo opportunity. :cam: I just LOVE owls!
