oh! how lovely: Why Zebra Finches sing to their eggs
"Key points:
Scientists find zebra finches sing to eggs when temperature is above 26 degrees Celsius
Chicks that heard "hot calls" grew slower and emerged smaller"
Compact size would present a survival advantage — having a small body makes it easier to cool down in hot climates"
With a link to the audio
"Singing birds prepare their offspring for a warming world. Australian scientists say they have found a type of bird that sings to its eggs before they hatch to possibly prepare the offspring for a warming world. The researchers at Deakin University say the findings may have revealed a previously unknown survival mechanism." Actually, the bird was "found" long ago, the researchers found a possible link bw the singing and survival.
There's also a transcript on the audio page.

this little guy loved the sound of his own voice in the chimney and possibly thought the aerial was a transmitter; he warbled and snickered, flew off, came back, more warbling and a slightly different snickering. He was perfecting his craft...

Guuguuburra ~ the sound of human laughter
"Kookaburra" was taken from the Wiradjuri word that describes the bird's call. Kookaburra's job is to signal the sky gods to light the sun each morning. It's said that if you're alone when you hear a Kooka, it means someone is missing you and you should go and be with loved ones. If a Kooka laughs at a gathering, it's a reminder to appreciate those you think of with love.
They also kill snek.

here is a red-rump parrot. it has it's very own genus. mono. typic.
well done, little guy! he's eating capeweed - a weed that drives lawn-people around here completely spare. personally, i'd rather have parrots than lawn-people but capeweed does have a lot of downsides - that's probably why it's known as a weed. Bugger. i'd still much rather have parrots.
his lady love was in attendance but i grabbed this snap as i was leaving one car to get into another and so missed getting a pic of her. meh, she's a little dull, they say ;)'

Glory (Glorificus), the Little Raven (one of many belonging to the resident dynasty founded by the grand matriarch. Pompom.). She's been popping in for a sitdown each morning of late. while i do coffee, then following me through the garden as i weed. She finishes-off the work with some good. solid scratchings and many nibblings of tiny bugs n beasties. She's quite lovely; a little more risk-taking than Pom who is cautious and quite selective with humans. Glory will walk into the house and steal food, pulling unopened packets outside if she can. She particularly likes Sakata Original. Pom prefers plain chips (crisps). Ricardo, the younger brother who still lives with mum, only steals my neighbour's tap washers from the box in the shed.
Corvus mellori - they're delighful.
