Bird mimics

by Chris Bertram on March 22, 2006

The British Library has just released a “CD of bird mimicry”: from around the world. Both the “Independent”: and the “Times”:,,2-2097400,00.html have articles, and the Times has a few soundclips (I liked the German bullfinches best, though the modem-connecting blackbird is startling.)

A fellow walked down the hall outside my office this morning who sounded exactly like the bullfinch sound clip! Convergent evolution?

Convergent evolution?

No, silly. Intelligent design.
