Blackbird and more

The common blackbird (koltrast) is perhaps Sweden's most well known and most beloved songbird. Here it sings against a background of other voices including a willow warbler (lövsångare) and a distant thrush nightingale (näktergal). Listen as closely as the blackbird does, and you will here them too! Steninge, Halland, June 1, 2013 around 20.00.

Camera: Canon XL-H1A with Canon FD (100-)300 mm lens. At this occasion my Telinga parabole was on service but the inbuilt microphone (mono recording) was more than sufficient to catch the blackbird's strong voice. Some noise filtering has been done. Sonogram from Izotope 2.0, screen capture with Debut 1.83.
