No modification of recording. Best recording of three, in successive years. Habitat: fig or olive trees just near building. Plumage: black to grey, with yellowy feathers around ass, under tail. Behavior: regular song at dawn early in the morning the first one to open concert. This is the 3rd year I repeated recording this bird. Only very slight differences, same pattern of simple song.

The bulbul is not as equipped as singer and probably only has basic school. 102454
