Whistler of the Dark forest Our ancestors might&#039;ve told us not to venture into the forests even in broad day light as they&#039;ve heard someone whistling in the dark forest, someone not alive, someone who cannot be seen.. <br />
Well this is that someone who cannot be seen..<br />
They whistle melodiously.. You have to have one experience at least.. Fabulous they are when it comes to the art of Whistling.. <br />
Wonders of Nature who might&#039;ve given base for ghostly stories back in days when there was no technology.. <br />
Such stories I really used to like cause if you see indirectly or directly these stories/beliefs/misbeliefs have protected these forests from encroachment but not everything is changed.. <br />

    1. Now imagine yourself alone in the dense forest of south India and you struggling to understand who is whistling. Posted 3 years ago
      1. It does sound like a human whistle, pretty creepy now that you say it. Posted 3 years ago

The Malabar whistling thrush is a whistling thrush in the family Muscicapidae. They are also known locally by the name of whistling schoolboy for the whistling calls that they make at dawn that have a very human quality. The species is a resident in the Western Ghats and associated hills of peninsular India including central India and parts of the Eastern Ghats.
