Speaking tree!

speaking_treeCome October and a great many indistinct trees in the plains of India seem to start speaking! Warblers arrive from the hills and countries up north and set trees abuzz with their constant, muffled calls. One of the most common warblers to visit the plains of north India in winters is Lesser Whitethroat Sylvia curruca, the call of which has been portrayed in this animated graphic. Lesser Whitethroats continuously move and hop around the trees they visit and while at it, utter their call incessantly. Listening to their soft calls in peaceful surroundings is an ethereal experience.
