Glen Loyd Videos: Mozart's bird, rural Rock County beauty
In this week's video, I film the favorite bird of Mozart.
The musical genius was so fond of his pet starling because it could whistle his Piano Concerto in G Minor. When the beloved bird died, he arranged an elaborate funeral for it.
Visit Wikipedia to read all about about starlings and their gift for mimicry.
