Nightingales, Goldfinches, White-capped Shamas & Other Songbirds by Axel Voltz

Hallo my Friends , Andy ,David and Peter,

I now have some time to look and "study" the internet and thought it might be interesting also for you.

There are 2 videos of the Whitecapped-Shama (C.m.stricklandii). One had a, let me say , not too bad song. The other one more repeating but I was surprised to see them in an aviary with chicks and breeding there in Borneo. WOW! (say nothing David ,I can hear you thinking hahhaaa) but for a songbirdpark with special points of the Shama in it's subspecies there this species is "a must" also . As much as I don't look too much for the display , it has a nice display and I remember Prayogi telling about the Borneo species like this.)

Also I found a lot of Nightingale videos and songs of different qualities but some very good. Also there I tried to select in the different subspecies and the Northern Nightingale. The Nightingale is a Nightingale.

Compare it's song the one in the Cage of the Cement walled room (of course a good bird) and the one far away by night in nature (in not so good condition like the caged bird,but the sound is better)

I also have added many videos of the European Goldfinch and found he is a popular Bird also in Turkey, Marocco and Arabic lands . We saw him on holidys in italy and Spain on many houses close to the way they are kept shamas in your country. It is a very beautiful coloured Seedeater with a plaesant song. It is not a "pure beginner bird" like a siskin (Carduelis spinus) or canary, but with a little practice he is easy to tame (normally they are longer time shy, different to siskin) and keep in best condition (He needs a lot of Nigerseed ~ 50% and best is Dandilion or chickweed)

Songs of Nachtigall (Nightingale Luscinia m. megharynchos ) . Eastern Nightingale (luscinia megh. Hafizii) , Northern Nightingale (Luscinia luscinia0 and European Goldfinch (Carduelis Carduelis) in cross with Canaries

Nachtigall:(Common Nightingale , Luscinia megharynchos) . A very simple bird but on the 1st view but a grazie when comming closer . The Bluethroath is one of it's closest relative and have much of their elegant , featherlight ballerina movement in common (in outback a nearly good one ) (This is in cage and closed room is not very good but from the broken Tones of a stonewall ) (not good) (Spain ???) (Nachtigall - Sprosser comparing but good )

The Eastern Subspecies "Luscinia megharynchos hafizii" , what is more pale and sandy coloured , compared to the reddishbrown Nominatform (It's Habitat is from Iran where it is the national bird and imaging for love , [turkey] to India . It is a mygratery bird and I am not sure how far eastern it will go by summertime up to sibiria or china ???? this here pictured is from Oman and the videos might show this species > I never hearded it singing before (A east German Birder friend told me once , they should not be singing as well as the European Species . He had access before the iron fence fell , to Russia as East Germany was . So I am surprised that the bird heer sings good .May be my friend found only a bad spot , same as the shamasongs might vary much by location (Nicht schlechter Sprosser Northern Nightingale Finnland) (Good Sprosser ,Northern NIghtingale in Russia Moskow) sprosser in Daenemark

Stieglitz or European Goldfinch Carduelis carduelis is a common cagebird in Europe specially and traditionally in Italy and Spain . He looks nice , gets aftre a while really tame and has a specially very good Seedeater song .
He makes very good crossbreeds with the Canarie and when they are in pure white only with the red , yelloew and black marks grown up NOT with canaries only with Goldfinches then they have the very good song and are very high prised ; some you can watch here and I believe they are from Turkey ??:

this one here is the species we kept mostly in Germany and catched them from the wild . The mask is more orange

This one is the Parva Goldfinch from Spain and southern , an excellent bird

Here is the bigger mayor Species from Russia

Here is the bigger mayor Species from Russia

A very nice song but I never would keep him together with Shamas or Nightingales .
In my opinion they "fit" good together with Mozanbique Greensinger or european skylark what means all "open air" birds . Shamma and nightingales are living in underbrush of big treen and forestes som the resonace is different (Absolut very good ) (Stieglitz from Russia Carduelis c. mayor , big white and guter song ,excellent bird and song) (good bird , the twisting means he is in good condition . The song here is not so good and short only ) (Europ.Goldfinch VS Parva Goldfinch ) (In Room sounds not very good , otherwise a very good bird) (wild Bird song ) (Stieglitz locking fror seeds in tree) (Stieglitz x Dompfaff hybride) (jungen aufzucht per knopfkanuele)

Birdmarket Salzdahlum close to my home in Germany and once a month I was there to meet birders from all over Germany and even Europe came there to deal with birds .I know the owner Mrs. Stuetzer very well : : (Australian King )
