    The power of philosophy flows through my head

    There were birds in the big tree outside who sang like bells ringing. Real bells, I mean. I have never heard anything like it, but alas, couldn’t see the little campanologists.

      I’ wouldn’t be surprised if they were thrushes. Truly. I caught what must be the entire repertoire of a song thrush on video record in one dawn chorus last year. I had to go to nz birds online & search to find all the sounds & identify the bird. They all came from the same bird – one of them was very bell-like. The thrush, in the morning anyway, produces a considerable array of different, quite distinct melodies, with no bum notes and crrraaacks like the bellies and tuis.

        Of course, that has to be it. It was stunning, anyway.

        That ‘big tree’ is a treasure.
