Blane Klemek column: Cowbirds possess unusual song, nesting behavior
I often try describing the songs and calls of birds by writing what I and other writers and ornithologists believe they sound like.
For example, by writing the "fee-bee" call of the black-capped chickadee, or the "Old Sam Peabody" song of the white-throated sparrow, or the "onk-a-ronk" vocalization of the American bittern, the reader might become better acquainted with the bird in question.
