The Virtuoso

Published by at 7:16 am under Beyond Bounds

The weather changed and it feels like fall today in Pittsburgh.  The warblers have left, the sparrows are migrating, and none of the birds are singing.

On the other side of the world it’s spring and time to sing.

In the video above a male Australian magpie sings his very best imitations, a quiet serenade in a back garden.

Can you recognize the sounds he’s imitating?  Listen for dog barks and budgie sounds.

Quite a virtuoso.

    Cute Kate but I just can’t put my finger on the tune. Beautiful bird

    Amazing! And I thought starlings were “talkative.” Can you imagine having this in your back yard? :-)
