:: red-winged blackbird
. Thank you!]
Having moved from Europe to North America, one of the things I miss the most here is the song of the European blackbird. What I got is the red-winged blackbird. Nice-looking fella - but what ornithologists kindly call his "song" sounds more like a scratchy, ear-piercing noise to me. However, with the wintry surroundings having become all quiet, I feel how I miss that still-new-to-me summer night's soundscape with the redwing's distinctive scream.
