The windows are open here at work today, and I am being taunted by a bird song I'm not familiar with. It's a loud, clear whistle, with a definite six note musical phrase that rises and falls. I wish I had a way to write it out in musical notation, because the rhythm and notes are so definite. I'll attempt to explain it in words:
D (eighth note)\ *eighth rest*\ G (eighth note) \*eighth rest*\G(dotted eighth) slurred to B (sixteenth)\B (sixteenth) slurred to D (dotted eighth). Moderate tempo.
At first I thought it might be a variation of a Baltimore oriole song, but the whistle sounds a bit different and orioles usually don't have such a strict rhythm. I mean, this bird's got syncopation!
Anyone have any ideas for me?
