Birdsong And Other Behaviours

Picking up where we left off yesterday, here are some of the birds in the display case about birdsong.


This panel beside the case explains how birds make sounds.


Nearby, a video screen shows birds in action.


Other cases look at bird behaviours such as nesting or preening.

  9. I was thrilled to see 4 different species out my window this morning at dawn...a Red Bellied Woodpecker, a Carolina Wren, an American Robin and a Mourning Dove. What a charming collection!

  10. @Amy: since French and English are our official languages, both are always present in these museums.

    @Ella: I believe so.

    @Italiafinlandia: I can too.

    @Jan: I didn't think of videos.

    @Catarina: me too.

    @Nancy: all I have around are pigeons.

    @Tom: some people are quite expert at it.

    @Magiceye: they're quiet in the mornings this time of year.

    @Barbara: lucky!

  15. The many birds that come into my garden every day are amazing to listen to, except when they start demanding food 😊 I've enjoyed the bird posts very much William ✨ Happy weekend.

  29. Interesting note about 'how birds sing'.

  30. I like the way the birds are used to explain their different behaviours. I've worked in two museums that had 19th century bird collections which were in large cases without any explanation:)
