So I’ve been hearing a bird, I can’t seem to catch sight of it, and its call is unlike anything I’ve heard before. I live in Ontario, Canada.
It sounds a lot like a robin, in that it’s a number of clearly whistled phrases, but the ‘words’ are different. And unlike a robin, the phrase is exactly the same every time.
It starts with two ‘dee-doo’ whistles, then one short ‘wheep’ uprising whistle, then a ‘ba-dee-doo’ up-even-down whistle, and then a buzzy double ‘chk-chk’ sort of sound.
Eurasian collared dove..(Lenham church) by Adam Swaine
Collared doves are a pale, pinky-brown grey colour, with a distinctive black neck collar (as the name suggests). They have deep red eyes and reddish feet. Their monotonous cooing will be a familiar sound to many of you. Although you’ll often see them on their own or in pairs,

Common Blackbird South London Garden May 2020
The robin came to watch me water the plants in the garden this morning. He sat on the clematis tower, and didn’t move, even when I was quite close to him, watering the peas. They’re so bold!
I saw my first ruby throated hummingbird the other day at my feeder! Can’t be coincidence it was the same day I dyed my hair ruby.

English Jay - Garrulus glandarius by Adam Swaine
Although they are the most colourful members of the crow family, jays are actually quite difficult to see. They are shy woodland birds, rarely moving far from cover. The screaming call usually lets you know a jay is nearby and it is usually given when a bird is on the move, so watch for a bird flying between the trees with its distinctive flash of white on the rump. Jays are famous for their acorn feeding habits
Here’s a nice lil video I took this morning ☺️
