Did Yellowhammers really sing for Elijah?

The black-and-yellow-spotted Yellowhammer (Emberiza Citrinella)

Probably so. Yellowhammers live all over the Middle East and are listed in Israels-10-beautiful-birds.

The Yellowhammer song influenced a composition by Beethoven and inspired several poems, including “The Yellowhammer’s Nest” by John Clare.

“They are the yellowhammer’s and she dwells
Most poet-like where brooks and flowery weeds”
