Thank you for these wonderful examples of bird song--and, inadvertently, for telling me I'm not crazy. It says the dark-eyed junco makes a sound like a "ringing telephone trill." Supposedly a forest bird but I've seen them here. I'd be outside in my yard and hear what I thought was my inside phone ringing and run inside, only to find out it wasn't (ringing). Now I know the name of the bird that does such a great imitation of ringing phones! You're right, it's a very fascinating language. Merci encore!

Irina,

if my language instructors were as musical as this, I'd be fluent in many languages.

Hello awyn:

Thanks for sharing such moments - I can relate to them.

I live in a busy city yet I wake up in the morning to chirping and tweeting (the real thing)...
Still have to figure out the their meaning though...:o)...

Please stop by again.

Hello Conrad:

They are indeed musical.


A tad frustrating at times since it's hard to figure out what these intriguing and awesome sounds mean...:o)...
