Serindit Mid-tone

I was told before that some Serindits (Blue-crowned hanging parrot) have a good repertoire of song. So far with my Serindit, his song is ok. Nothing to shout about, but nice enough for me. Then one day, I heard him doing his mid-tone. Quite impressive for a tiny parrot hahaha! The below is a video I made of him doing his mid-tone. Noise quality not too good as his mid-tone is quite soft but every tone he gives out is followed by a small flick of his tail.

Now, to test his loud song to the limit needs an arrangement to "chai" (challenge) him with similar adult birds. Hope I can document tyhe performance one of these days ;)
