Aloha Everyone,Nightingales are song birds and territorial. Mature male birds have rich, melodious and a large repertoire of songs mimicking as many as 10 different song birds.
They belong to a European Thrush family. Dull, brownish plumage help conceal this incredible singers from other birds, animals and humans.
The word nightingale has German origin, Nschtigell, which means sing.
One of the highlights of my morning walk is to listen to the songs of Nightingale especially when it’s foggy and chilly crisp air promises of another beautiful day.
