The UK’s yellowhammer is a prime example of a multi-accent species. These bright yellow small birds tend not to leave their own areas, so ornithologists have confirmed that they have particularly thick accents. Widespread throughout the UK, this species’ song differs in terms of tone and pitch, depending upon which part of the country it is found. It can also add different phrases to its song, depending on its local region and dialect.
