How do you express bird sounds?
What do bird chirps mean?
Birds' chirping is rather simple but it means a lot. Birds chirp to indicate danger, warning and communication. Both male and female birds can chirp. The singing of birds is quite sweet and agreeable, often with a melodious tone. Attention should also be paid to the reaction of birds while listening to their chirping.
Why do birds make different sounds?
Birds have very complex vocalizations, often with more than one tone produced simultaneously, thanks to the specialized syrinx (their equivalent of a voice box) that allows them to create independent sounds in different parts of their trachea.
Although the term for this behaviour is the "dawn chorus", the word "chorus" is quite okay by itself: "The chorus of birdsong could be heard every day starting at 5 am" "Birds sang in chorus as the sun rose" "Duetting and chorus singing in African Birds"
It's very similar to people in that if we don't feel good, our voice tone goes down and we're not so animated and there's a general malaise.” Any kind of physical malady—an infection, inflammation, metabolic disorder, or trauma—could cause your bird to decrease its vocalizations or stop chattering altogether.
Birds will defend the territory around their nests by singing to signal their presence and by chasing other birds away. Birds don't sing to make us happy, they sing to attract a mate and defend their territory.
Most birds tend to communicate vocally, although some are much more vocal than others. One of the most common forms of bird communication is a call note. In small birds, call notes may sound like chirps. That same bird might use a completely different call note to warn of danger from the ground, such as from a cat.
When writing down bird-songs in the field, the features to note are pitch, time, loudness and quality, also the syllables which the bird utters. Of these features, the syllables, pitch and time can be noted down quite effectively, but the loudness and quality can only be described or imitated.
