The bird was making that initial call continuously from a hide. I waited there for some time hoping to get a look. Then slowly the usual notes of Rufous Babbler started to come along with the call. Finally it completely became the regular Rufous call. A single bird came out after some time, but then it made only the usual call. The first call was totally new to me.
