There is no other bird that sings so deeply, so full of ecstacy as the nightingale. The melody is endlessly varied. Nightingales are therefore best known for their singing talent. In the spring, they sing during the day as well as at night, however their songs are often drowned by disturbing noises. Nightingales live mostly in thick vegetation from shrubs with lots of stinging nettle and blackberries. In the Netherlands, the majority of the nightingales make their nests in the dunes.
