Anyway, there are soundfiles here to help you understand the different breeds. Me, I shall be most happy with the timbrado, and more exclusively, the discontinuous notes of the floreado. If you are still forming your taste, opinions, and prejudices, stick around here! I shall continue my work!
Thanks to Sebastian for his website with it's interesting twists and turns. Sebastian is now breeding Floreados, by the way, or as close as we can get to them in America, if I'm right.
Thinking about American Singer song thereÂ´s an interesting subject to consider. American Singer is a blend between Border canary and Roller (33% Border, 66% Roller). Border is an ancient English race known since the XVIII Century but probably much older. A very interesting thing about Border song is its closeness to wild canary song, the general tone of his song is higher than Roller or Waterslager and Borders usually develop quite a lot of warbling like notes and what we know in Timbrado as flourishes. Probably this is because is one of the few races without or with very little influence of Saxon ancestors, root of Roller, Waterslager and most of form races. In a certain sense, also because of his voice, Border is very close to certain lines of Spanish Timbrado.
I've been thinking of the comments I made below on the American Singer, to find out that it is not completely correct. There is room at judging contests for the American Singer. Yet, I remember reading the comments I've made, and I can leave them there, Am I right that that is among the struggles with the American Singer? Work with Timbrados is just as incomplete, and probably each individual person with each breed has a slightly different taste. Yet, Dog breeders would never (I hope never) mix breeds as wished to make another breed, although the most famous German Shepherd, and other breeds have begun just that way, and I know that in Germany some crossing with German Sheeping dogs to strengthen a breed which was weakened by too much inbreeding, together with the devastation caused to German dogs from World War II. So, there are truly no absolute laws, balanced with the need for the standard that is being yet in liquid form, but becoming ever more of a "gel". This is as essential to song as it is for any other feature.
All being said (and more) I shall continue to praise the event of the internet and the sound files to use as a magnificent tool for learning and thinking. Please remember that anyone can comment on any post, which should be used to broaden and clarify and become part of good work to have the most beautiful singing bird in the world!
The work goes on! Oh... And if you want to have posting privileges, please ask me, I can invite you to have posting privileges. Don't forget that you can always comment, of course, being friends. There could be no good reason to not be friends, but on the other hand, each of us has a right to have very strong opinions. Right?
I don't know if I clearly said, that the link above has files of the song of the American Singer. Listen to them.
I know there are also sites for the Waterslagger and the Roller. I think I shall put up links to those birds, also... A nice way to get a sense of the total picture, maybe to be compared with going to a Canary Show!
If anyone knows much about the "American Singer", I hope I can get some description of that. I'm not sure of myself, and would like to learn (here would be fun, I can also try the web). My understanding of the American Singer is that there never has been the consensus needed to make the song of the American Singer genetic. For that reason, I hope, if I remember, the American singer has never become a songbird that could be accepted for judging. All song ideas = no song ideas? I'm going to try to get a sense of the American Singer before moving on to the timbrado. The important things I learn, I hope to put here. Then, with some clear ideas of the chart (printed clearly on the link) we will see the need for standards. Work which has already been clarified, enabling us to come to understand song which can be in alignment.
For example, imagine one person loving the shepherd dog, and another loving the red colors of the Irish setter, another, loving the group hunting behavior of hunting dogs, and, ridiculously, one person loving the Chowowa/sp and another loving the great Dane. Put them all together, breed them, and your dog will be a mutt, having none of the qualities of any of the breed. Is that a description of the American Singer, which would be exactly what we would not want to happen to the timbered?
I truly hope there will be some discussion on the American Singer before we get back to the timbrado, and finally, the floreado.
Thank you so much in advance for the discussion we hope to get, I hope to be active for awhile again, before I get all these baby floreados! Thanks finally!
