Dancing a jig

By HobbitDave
This single Starling likes to perch on the telephone wire each evening, and sings his heart out with a curious warbling song of imitated bird sounds. Yesterday he was flapping his wings while holding onto the wire, as though he/she was dancing. Very joyful bird!

Thanks kindly for the clicks and comments on yesterdays House Sparrow, they are always very welcomed 🐈

It is amazing how some birds mimic others - I wonder why some do and some don't?
