Kate Humbles Bluetits [aka Chat-naturewatch]

We have eight goldfinches on our bird feeder just now.
Is that a record for Scotland?

It sounds catchy, but you'll have to wait for independence before you can enter Eurovision.

'afro'

Could it be the birdie song.

BTW...biggest ever worldwide selling record by a Scot is 'Chirpy Chirpy Cheap Cheap'
Something to be proud of ~not~

Doon, here's the birdie poem you forgot to finish:

We have eight goldfinches
On our bird feeder just now.
Is that a record for Scotland?
Oh dear, not really... oh wow!

Notice that two males have claws
Firmly gripped on the feeder's rim.
And near by, two female finches chirping,
Not worried, hurried or grim.

Look! They're setting a sweet trap
To lure the other four guests,
Determined not to waste time
Upping the ante, primping the nest.

Alas, so it seems in Scotland
Unless playing in the yellow gorse,
2 'birds' will beat 6 'eagles.'
The only remedy: whiskey... of course!
