    Really nice video. In Spain we had a great man, similar to Attenborough, but he died. Felix Rodriguez de la Fuente, there are some videos of his work in youtube.

    This post shares a very awesome video of sweet birds sound.Watching this clip reminded me of our childhood days when we use to visit our nanny’s farm house during summer vacations.There we got to listen all these sounds,early morning at the time of sunrise.
