Nightingale Song

April 3rd, 2005

The Nightingales are back! At least in my neighborhood. Haven’t got a photo of one yet–they seem to like hiding–but you can see what one looks like here (found through Google Image Search, by the way). A small sample of the song is here–you can see why they stand out, aurally, at least. I remember that the Nightingale call was used a lot on the Kurosawa movie Tsubaki Sanjuro (a real fun flick).
