Ah, yes …

 How Do You Bond With Mozart? Adopt A Starling : Deceptive Cadence : NPR. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The other really interesting thing in the notebook he copied down was the motif from the Allegretto [movement] of that Concerto No. 17. He copied it the way he wrote it, and then he copied it down the way the starling that he met in the shop sang it. It was very similar. And we have another piece of ephemera, an elegy that he wrote when the starling passed away three years later.
