Singing Dunnocks

What a super song these rather drab birds have! I say drab, but close up they're rather neat. I've got one that sings in the bush outside my window, and it's a delight.
This one seems to be really going for it, Chris.

Song

Simon, I think the Dunnock pound for pound has one of the most melodious songs there is and it always puts on a great show. An unjustly under rated bird, I just love watching and listening to them.

Voyeurism

Be careful watching them for too long...it's a steamy hot-bed of passion under your hedge! Polygyny and polygynandry...you name it, Dunnocks are up to it.
