The Nightingale (Rossignol, Usignolo, Ruiseñor, Rouxinol, die Nachtigall)

To hear the bird whose song is reference in T.S. Eliot's "The Wasteland", listen to THIS RECORDING. (From about 6 to 10 seconds you'll hear the "Jug jug jug jug jug jug" that Eliot presents as its song at line 204 and the "Jug Jug" at line 103, and you'll also hear the "twit twit twit" from line 203 throughout the recording.)

OK, HERE is another recording. So beautiful, tereu, tereu....
