I'm a birdie from Jūrmala - the city by the sea. You would think that the seagulls are the only birds roaming the place, however looking closer in the shrubs and bushes, you will notice abundance of many little birds - and I'm one of them.

No other bird sings like the nightingale, No other bird coos like the wood pigeon. In the garden behind my workshop I always see birds flying and bringing me happy thoughts and pleasant encounters. Let this pigeon be the messenger of your happy days!

I'm from Riga -a city boy. Look up to Riga's church towers! Roosters sit proudly on top of them with the sunshine lighting up their frames. My big brothers are made of gold and copper but I am from clay. Play my song and it will take you back to Riga.

Svilpaunieks is made of Latgalian red clay which is told to be one of the best in the world. It gives the bird its copper colour. By linking the sky with the earth and the air with the water, svilpaunieks' song comes to life with three different tones. Just place it to your lips and let the song enchant you.
