This has been a great year for birds in my yard. We've got bluebirds nesting in a birdhouse; I dunno that we've had bluebirds before. I'm pretty sure we have a family of goldfinches, too, plus all the usual, but more of them -- cardinals, purple finches, robins, chickadees, mourning doves, nuthatches. . .

i was going to record bees for a long time
it was not an easy task
now i don’t think that bees are such hard workers as it described in fairy tales
a plum bush blossomed near the studio
i waited for bees one week connecting daily 100m of cables
but they appeared only once and buzzed just two hours
the wind hindered recordings
so there is only 10 minutes but it is excellent
this record is quieter than my other soundscapes
but I did not raise the volume to an unnatural level
bees are very quiet creatures

Yes indeed. Here's one:

I like your MusicTales website, by the way. :)

perhaps a bird of happiness implies any bird whose plumage is blue =)

regarding the song There'll Be Bluebirds Over The White Cliffs of Dover, bluebirds mean American planes with a blue underbody that patrolled British Islands during World War II

This review contains a transcript of the sounds of one overnight recording session featuring bird songs, cricket choirs, wind blowing, and other sounds of nature.

These soundscapes were recorded during spring in the depths of a mixed forest where a set of microphones captured a stereo panorama. The captured soundscapes are that of a meadow with a diameter of about 100 meters that produces a multi-level echo and deep reverb.

The nature concert opens with a nightingale recorded around midnight who tirelessly varies its song for an hour until it was frightened off by a creature who made a distinct rustle of foliage not far from the bird. The nightingale sings from the bush located on the left while the recording is balanced by the choirs of crickets audible, for the most part, in the right channel. In the center of the stereo panorama, you can clearly hear the wind sir the crowns of tall trees and then gradually subside towards the end of the track. In the background, another nightingale can sometimes be heard singing far in the depths of the forest.

Nightingale song accompanied by wind, crickets, and woodland sounds:
https://youtu.be/t0qdmWiOnNU

As you can hear, the soundscape is very much reminiscent of a musical performance since both the nightingale and the cricket choirs are tuned to a general tonic which in certain fragments of the recording is very close to the note E.

After some time, the nightingale resumes its chanting, now having settled in the depths of the meadow. The bird's volume decreased due to the distance from the microphone but now it sings closer to the far edge of the forest meadow and the reverb has become deeper and more distinct. In the second part of the recording, the bird bustle increases to proclaim the dawn of a new day.

Nightingale song in the predawn hours gives way to various bird calls and morning bustle:
https://youtu.be/dl6l5-nNtOw

On the left channel of the next soundscape, you can hear the red-backed shrike singing in the bush where the nightingale previously located. Perhaps it was the shrike nesting here who frightened off the nightingale. On the recording, the nightingale is still singing in the background surrounded by other birds.

Shrike morning calls with nightingale and multiple birds in the background:
https://youtu.be/nvfr8BgpxNA

The following short piece contains a bird trio of the shrike, warbler, and nightingale. The warbler that comes later has an alarm-like call that goes well with the chirping of the shrike who will soon be silent. The warbler and shrike are heard in the left channel while a nightingale, singing in the distance, fills the background.

Bird trio of shrike, warbler, and nightingale jamming together in the woods:

The final morning recording of this set features all the awakened winged inhabitants of the forest, including the woodpecker tapping at the trunks of pine trees and flying around the meadow. By this time, сrickets have fallen almost completely silent and are partially overshadowed by the morning bustle of many species of birds.

Possibly so, but one still wonders. (Convoluted ruminations alert: eye de-glazer is recommended) According to my information, in the temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere the male North American bluebird is the only bird that is predominantly blue; even our native blue jay is only partially blue, a substantial portion of its coloring being white with bits of black (side note: no one would ever call a blue jay a "Bluebird of Happiness", as it is raucous, bold and aggressive; as with crows, although they command attention, only their enthusiasts really love them). In temperate Eurasia there are few birds with any blue coloring, and the blue bits would be limited at best. And that is my point: Given that the bluebird concept goes back possibly thousands of years on the right side of the Pond - IOW, well prior to any knowledge of the Western Hemisphere and its fauna - where might the concept have come from? I wouldn't expect a bird with only a smidgen of blue on its wing to be thought of as "blue". For that reason, the question fascinates me: With no truly blue birds, then why blue, of all colors? But it suddenly occurs to my philosophical side that where there are no blue birds, a blue one is the perfect symbol for lasting happiness, since it is just as imaginary as the other. Maybe that's the answer.

Of the three North American bluebird species, in two the males have a rufous breast and white underparts, but the Mountain bluebird species is almost entirely blue throughout.

Handsome little fellow, isn't he.

Aha. That makes sense. :)
