What’s been up with the Blackbirds lately? Well, yesterday I spent a lot of time with Mr. Blackbird, listening to some Italian music, taking pics and filming him. He found the music very relaxing and even dozed off a few times, inspite of me pointing my camera at him and Little Miss Susi sitting just one meter away from him. If you’re going to watch the video, be sure to take a look at his feet; one of his claws keeps moving to the rhythm as if he was trying to grasp the rhythm. Maybe next year he’ll integrate some of what he’s heard into his seasonal song.

Ok, you’re probably wondering where the Italian music is?! I had to remove the original sound, which was Francesco de Gregori playing in the background, cause otherwise the video could not be shown in some countries of this world due to copyright issues. Francesco de Gregori is great, try and find his music, maybe you’ll like it as much as Mr. Blackbird here. 😉
