Been checking my new IEMs recently using among others Diana Krall's fantastically sounding albums hence two bird songs by DK..

I don't think owls have been mentioned on this thread. How come.?

 

 

Some facts about these birds whose faces are actually ears (!) Did you know that many owls have asymmetrical ear holes (one higher than the other).? Why are their eyes symmetrical then.? And most importantly - what's their perception of a soundstage.?!

The owls are not what they seem.

Respect, man. Not everyone knows about it...

 

One more thing as for their asymmetrical ear holes - imagine asymmetrical headphones for owls.

A cover version, from the album "A Box of Birds".  Followed by the far superior original version from Hawkwind.  (I'll try not to cheat so much next time....)

Bird music begins around the 0:44 mark haha!  I'd forgotten this, it's been a long time since I last listened to this symphony!

From my Album of the Evening. Strauss ladeled on the birdsong in this polka alternately reflective of a scenic woods and heavy implications of the scenic wonders to be found at a tavern of the same name.

The reconnaissance mission of the parrot flock is potentially alarming.  They have noted that this thread makes repeated references to "bird song," while most examples are wordless, and thus not "song"--they may feel that this is discriminatory against them as the most famous group of birds actually capable of using human language and thus "song" in a human sense.  Now that they have found the originator of this thread, their next mission may well involve 'bombing' runs, so be alert.  On the other hand, ravens may be recruited as ninjas, so you'd never see them coming.  If you hear a cry of "nevermore," I'd suggest taking the warning seriously.

I agree, in particular, if they are feral parrots.

Back to music..
