Good morning! It’s another Beautiful Sunday! Sing along if you like.

What is the most beautiful songbird in the world?  If we mean ‘musical to our ears’, then surely one of our favourites would be the Malabar Whistling Thrush, Myophonus horsfieldii, of India. — Listening Earth Blog

That’s a bird I had never heard of until this week. The Malabar Whistling-Thrush (Myophonus horsfieldii) is also known as Whistling Schoolboy or sometimes Idle Schoolboy because its song resembles a person whistling a tune. These birds are found in the Western Ghats and hills of peninsular India including central India and parts of the Eastern Ghats.
