Lovely to look forward to these! I've noticed them starting to sing from 15th January this year (2015).
The european blackbird (Turdus merula) is certainly popular with me and many who love bird song. The varied dialects and phrases of the blackbird make it one of the most interesting and beautiful song birds worlwide.
109115__inchadney__wind.wav Many thanks for this sound. I used this sound as part of a piece of sound art for an exhibition being curated by a friend as part of a final year college project. Unfortunately not a paid commission! You and freesound.org are credited. The whole piece is about 6 minutes long and uses many sound files. I may upload the completed work to soundcloud after the exhibition. I shall post a link to it here if I do.
