Common Nightingale


I was lucky to find this male Common Nightingale singing out in the open.
Usually, you can hear them singing from in the scrub, almost always invisible.
Its song is powerful and beautiful, an impressive range of whistles, trills and gurgles.
Common Nightingales are so named because they frequently sing at night as well as during the day.
