Our garden has constant visits from several species of birds. They have everything here that any bird would look for - fruits, lush greenery, trees, a bird bath............. The cable wires are their favourite haunt. They take care not to perch on high tension wires. They are smart. In this video clip you can hear them chirp away - surely an opera in 'B' minor? We have had the joy of listening to these and several other birds over a period of time.
Birds perched on wires singing their own tune but in unison - a rare sound and a rare scene. I call it the Opera in /B/ Minor!

@antonbunot If there is no greenery they will not remain. On the contrary we have created greenery here. They also have a bird bath.

Yes that is my video. Those birds were perched in front of our gate on those cables. The one in the middle is that Greater Racket tailed drongo She is the one that has more than 6 ways of chirping including a cat meaow.

I just cannot resist recording them. I get loads of them and I have captured most of them in my camera.

Wow, those birds in India could carry a tune . . Here in Calgary those black birds could not carry a tune . .but they could carry anything inside our garbage bin! . .By the way, I am wondering what 1.2k signifies . . Does it mean you wrote and posted 1 thousand 2 hundred already? That's a lot of works you did!
