Mounted Nightingale: The Unseen Singer of the Forest
Deep in the shadows of European and Asian forests lurks an unassuming bird with a voice that touches the soul. This is the Nightingale, scientifically known as Luscinia megarhynchos. Although its plumage is inconspicuous brown and blends effortlessly with the forest floor, it is its extraordinary song that gives the Nightingale its well-deserved fame.
The Nightingale is a small songbird, recognizable mainly by its reddish tail and fine, pointed beak. They are mostly found in dense forests, shrublands and gardens. But it is during the quiet nights of spring and early summer that their magic really comes alive. While most other birds sleep, the Nightingale fills the air with a melody that ranges from high notes to trilling notes and everything in between.
An interesting fact about the Nightingale is that it is mainly the males that sing, and they do this during the day as well as at night. Their singing is used to mark out a territory and to attract a mate. Some of these melodies are so complex that they can take up to a minute to repeat!
