2016-01-04 03:00   The Backyard Singers

Y (Kuma's owner)

I have been searching for the name of this black bird.

Willie Wagtail

He sometimes visits my backyard. His song was nice and I wanted to know the name but I couldn't find it. I have uploaded this picture to my Twitter account expecting that someone will know the name. My expectation was right, two of my Twitter friends let me know the name of this bird. It was a Willie Wagtail.

Thanks to my Twitter friends!

After that, I had another singer who can sing beautifully. It was a Gray Butcherbird.

Grey Butcherbird

He had a beautiful voice. Every time I hear his voice, I try to take a video to record his melody but he always comes near the window or on the pinch hanger. I want to record him somewhere on the tree, you know. Somewhere in nature. It doesn't look nice to see a singing bird on the pinch hanger with washed socks underneath. I wonder why Grey Butcherbirds come close to humans? I have searched for a Grey Butcherbird's video on YouTube. There were several videos and I noticed that some Grey Butcherbids sing on the balcony or handrail of the veranda. It almost looks like saying "Look, I can sing more beautifully than any other birds!"

I'm looking forward to seeing him on the backyard tree next time, not on the pinch hanger.
