More History... An Important Point.

An Important point of the Drove article is that he thinks he found an area in Spain where the most important birds were being bred. These birds have become the source for the floreado type. Madrid is still the center for the classic type. Not everyone agrees with everyone, isn't that true of all life? I'd say that the way to decide is to listen to the many files that are out there. That should be your source for the type of bird that you love the most, or, anything in between. I can hint that the reason for this blog is that I'm so completely taken by these new birds. I hope to talk more about song one of these days! That's at least my intention! I might mention that Luis is very much in the background, helping me as I try to sort things out, guiding me, correcting, and sometimes prodding me!
Hi Tom and friends:
Certainly Drove found in the 50s the type of song that he thought lost and forgotten. This was in Asturias (North of Spain) where a very small number of fanciers managed to preserve the essence of the ancient Spanish Song. The master found the disciples, as in the old stories, and they started to rebuild, with DroveĀ“s guidance, probably the most characteristic canary song since Trute and Seifert developed modern Roller. And this has not ended yet, probably never will. The way that we select our "floreados" allows them to develop all their inner capabilities, all their creativity, that seems to be endless. Every year we listen different things and amaze us the way that so little brains and bodies are able to compose and perform such beautiful music.

Great article! We are linking to this great article on our site. Keep up the good writing.
