Common Blackbird (Turdus merula; Svarttrost; Merle noir) sings loudly from a tree, drops to the ground to poke for grub, then switches to a barely audible twittering song, as if singing to itself. This musical twitter is a variant of the so-called "quiet song". From the island of Sotra west of Bergen, Norway in early spring. Background songs are Great Tit, European Robin, and Greenfinch. Birds of Norway west coast. MP4
