Another Beatles and Floyd connection

Rob Yest of Arizona:  "The birds at the beginning of High Hopes are the same that can be heard at the beginning of The Beatles' 'Across The Universe' found on Past Masters Vol. 2. What's your opinion?"

We consulted our resident bird watcher and she reports, "Birds of a different feather often flock together, especially on Beatles and Floyd records."  In the BBC tape vaults, there are tapes of every known feathered vertabrate on Earth.  The bird sounds in question came from an EMI Abbey Road record library volume "Pastoral" which was commonly used by bands recording there.  Listen to Grantchester Meadows and Sheep, just to name two additional Floyd songs with birds.  And no, there is no hidden message in the birdsong.
