Bird Song of the Day: Blackbird – Thursday 9th April
Listen for blackbirds singing, particularly noticeable in the evening…
From the British library website: “Early morning and evening are usually the best times to hear the male blackbirds at their most lyrical, as they proclaim mates and territories from favoured song posts. Each song is often two to three seconds long with a similar interval before the next burst, and is rich and mellow with a languid delivery and fluted quality. Most birds have a wide repertoire of songs and birds can even develop a 'regional accent' as certain characteristic phrases spread through adjacent territories.”
Go to the RSPB website to hear the song.
