Oriole (Oriolus oriolus)
The oriole is nearly impossible not to recognise because of its glamorous black–yellow feathering. Its characteristic, melodic fluting song sounds exactly like its onomatopoeic scientific name Oriolus oriolus or also ,,büllo-büllo'' (ger.), which originated the popular name Bird-Bülow. By the way, the famous german actor Vicco von Bülow chose the French name of this bird - Loriot - for his pseudonym.
Show & Tell
Don’t let music define you especially if you’re a studied conservationist like Dominik Eulberg. He might be best known for his music to Attack readers but he has several feathers in his cap as his other main interest is ornithology and wildlife protection. To support his new album, we asked him to tell us about his favourite birds...
What to do when you’re fed up with the studio? How about getting at one with nature?
In what is a more curious Show & Tell than the typical feature, Dominik Eulberg surprises us with his deep interest in birds. Looking for a new hobby? Perhaps this might get you inspired. And if it doesn’t there’s definitely a tonne of interesting and organic sounds that could easily be sampled into a track. Get to know the other side of Dominik Eulberg.
