šŸ¦‰ The bluethroat (Luscinia svecica)

šŸ“š Luscinia (lat.) Nightingale
šŸ“š svecica suecicus (lat.) Swedish; the name svecica, according to the history of the description, is not a toponym, but is given for the color of the male's chest:
Olof Rudbeck junior, Swedish botanist and birdwatcher, mentor to Carl Linnaeus,
having discovered the bluethroat in 1695 in Lapland, he gave it the name Avis Carolina in honor of the Swedish king Charles XI and the blue-yellow Swedish flag (in those days the yellow color on the flag was more reddish), and K. Linnaeus in 1758, when the absolute power of the monarchy in Sweden was no longer, considered the name svecica more correct than carolina (Jobling, 2010)

What a funny nightingale! He can be found in various shrubs, mainly along river banks or in meadows. There he actively jumps on branches or the ground.
Coming closer to him, he will of course hide to avoid danger. But one has only to turn on the sounds of these birds on the speaker... He jumps out of the bushes this very second to look at a competitor. He will begin to sing a song intensely, fly into the air. These are elements of mating games, demonstration.
