Songs. The musical song of the American Robin is a familiar sound of spring. It’s a string of 10 or so clear whistles assembled from a few often-repeated syllables, and often described as cheerily, cheer up, cheer up, cheerily, cheer up.

#3 The Robin “Whinny” Call
The Robin whinny is a fascinating call. It’s commonly called the whinny amongst birders because it sounds a bit like a horse.
Song: this classic loud, clear song says “tea-kettle, tea-kettle, tea-kettle.” 18. Song: another typical variation says “che-wortel, che-wortel, che-wortel.”
Northern Mockingbird: The song is a long series of phrases, with each phrase usually repeated three times or more; the songs can go on for 20 seconds or more.
About 25 new actions have landed on Google Home for Google Assistant, including an action that lets you listen to the sounds of hundreds of bird songs and one that mimics the person in your office who says innocuous, buzzword-laden things in meetings.
Among the earliest to rise are skylarks, song thrushes, robins and blackbirds, and as they do eat worms there may be some truth to the old saying! A more relaxed approach is taken by wrens and warblers, that typically appear later.
10 Birds That Sing: The Most Beautiful Bird Songs in the World.Summary.
The common nightingale song is considered as the most pleasant melodic bird song.
Your “pretty bird” could be a Carolina Wren. They have a 3-syllable song, sometimes represented as “tea-kettle, tea-kettle, tea-kettle.” I just listened and it sounds like the Carolina Wren.
Calls. Both male and female Brown-headed Cowbirds make a variety of whistles, clicking and chattering calls. You’ll often hear flight whistles, which are a series of 2–5 clear sweeping whistles with occasional buzzes or trills mixed in. Females make a distinctive rolling chatter that is very attractive to males.
Some call it a combination of high pitched “whistling” and “piping” (Irish penny whistle, anyone?). Some call it “chattering”, as though it were a squirrel. Still others liken it to “chirping”, oddly bringing the largest bird of prey down to the level of a songbird at the bird feeder.
Songs. House Sparrows have a rather simple song of one or a series of cheep or chirrup notes. It’s mainly given by males, who repeat it incessantly during much of the year to announce that they possess a nest and to attract females. Females only rarely use this song, typically to attract a new mate after losing one.
Here is a list of birds and their sounds
|Birds||Cries/ Sound names|
Calls. Cedar Waxwings have two common calls: a high-pitched, trilled bzeee and a sighing whistle, about a half-second long, often rising in pitch at the beginning. Cedar Waxwings call often, especially in flight.
The mourning dove makes a haunting, melodic “hooooo-hoo-hoo-hoo” sound. This call is highly distinctive once you learn to recognize it and tell it apart from the calls of owls, which tend to be more of an abrupt “hoot-hoot-hoot” sound.
The White-breasted Nuthatch’s most common call is a loud, nasal yank often repeated a few times in a row. Both sexes make this call, and it often has a more trembling, almost bleating quality, than either the bird’s song or the Red-breasted Nuthatch’s call. When looking for food, males and females exchange a soft yink.
Swainson’s Thrushes also have a thin, high-pitched, single-note whine similar to that of American Robin. They also make a bink like water dropping onto a hard surface, and a single, drawn-out, metallic peeer reminiscent of the song of the Varied Thrush, but not as long.
The “seee” alarm call and the “weet” alarm call are given only by cocks and only in the nesting season. The “seee” call is usually reserved for the sudden appearance of a hawk. The “weet” is sounded when the danger is less immediate.
Calls. House Wrens make a variety of harsh sounds: churrs, chatters, rattles, and scolds, often in response to large animals that might be predators.
The northern mockingbird, a medium-sized gray bird, is one of the most notorious singers, taking great joy from chirping and mimicking other bird calls at all hours of the day and night. “Not only do they sing in the morning, but they sing loud,” Capra said.
