    Singing garden bird (europe-greece)

    i recorded this bird in my garden this afternoon (around 4 pm). The bird was in a very thick tree so i could not see it. I think it sounds like a european starling but I am not sure. I have a very hard time identifying bird songs so if anyone has any ideas what it might be please reply :)
