Yesterday evening, Mark visited with 2 of his shamas.  One is about to moult and therefore not in form.  The other shama performed very well and displayed and sang during the chai session of about 1 1/2 hours.

I took the opportunity to train my young birds and also to raise Skyhawk's form. Below is a video of Skyhawk which was recorded more than 1 hour after the start of the chai session.

The shama is an open-ended learner and it can learn new songs throughout its life.  Skyhawk has learnt some of the songs of the Samyong (Bare-throated Whistler) and he has incorporated them into his repertoire.  Skyhawk's interpretation of the Samyong song can be heard about half-way through the recording - immediately before and after he pauses to check his feet.
