Bird Song

In this video Syd Strangways stands on Finniss hill as the sun is setting in order to sing part of a traditional song. The song has many words for birds in it.

The song is part of a story about an old blind man being cheated out of food by his greedy grandson, who gives him small birds to eat while keeping all the good meat for himself! The old man discovers the trickery and hits the boy with a waddy (a club).
