Hello,
I have another problem with birds in a song.
On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: four calling birds.
What exactly are these? Are they simply any birds who are calling (making sounds to invite prospective spouses), or is there a species or genus of birds known by that name?

Thanks in advance,
Leszek.
OK, I found it. Originally, the song mentioned colly birds, "birds black as coal", a species nowadays known as the blackbirds.

Cheers,
L.

And now a riddle: If you get four colly birds on the fourth day of christmas, how many folly birds will you get on the twelfth day of x-mas?
