A few days ago, I had the pleasure of hanging clothes. It is one of my favorite jobs. It was so fun to hang the laundry outside. Some kind of bird was out there "talking" away the whole time - either a mocking bird or a purple finch. It was so hilarious - the bird chattered, made a noise like a car trying to start but not being able to, "called" the dog, laughed, mimicked a crow and another bird, and sang all kinds of tunes. I recorded it for over a minute, and I don't know if it even repeated a sound or not. There were other birds out there singing at the same time.
Click on the file below to sample just a little of the bird song that I enjoyed. If clicking does not work, try right clicking. Then click "open in new tab." It should play then.
