Identify a bird for me, please
There's a bird I hear often (particularly in the morning), outside my flat (urban area), in the woods (broad leafed trees), out in the country, but I've never spotted the bird itself.
It makes a rapid two-tone call, like a squeaky toy being squeezed: "dee-do-dee-do-dee-do-dee-do".
It's quite loud and clear, not a timid tweety sound.
I have looked up and listened to so far are:
It's none of them.
Not round here - they just use the helicopter!
I think you're right about the Great Tit, FB.
I checked it out on a different site yesterday (as I see them quite a lot), and it didn't sound like it - but the sound on the RSPB site does
Ta! I knew I could rely on the forum
I've got one in the back garden that sings in the tree-top all day long, it goes
twee da lee da lee, twee da lee da lee
twee da lee da lee, twee da lee da lee,
Any ideas ?
One more random bird noise - there's what I suspect to be a duck that quacks in a manner that sounds like a comedy laugh.
sort of Quaaaaaack quaaack quaack quack, down a descending scale.
OK, I know I look a bit odd running, but really, there's no need for the wildlife to laugh at me. Let me know what it is. I may see if the local shoot would care to take them out for me
*toddles off feeling not at all guilty about that duck we had on Sunday*
