Dtella? No, a gecko (not an Asian one).

Tis a native gecko.

One difference between it and the introduced indonesian house gecko is it lacks claws on the inner toe.

ETA: curse those ninjas

I hear these while I'm working in bush regen in the mornings at 7am. Of course I like the bird's call, as i'm already awake. Oops, see next post.

I'm not looking forward to their usual plaintive calls, at 3:00-4:00am. I've heard them referred to as the "wind me up" bird, which you'll understand if you listen to their call:
I mean the Koel.
