Hi Oatie
Boo Boo clears her throat and imitates perfectly the sound of the landline ringing at home. she then pushes Cori onto the stage for more on the speech about bird songs:
Owls hoot less when it rains since wet weather acts as a damper on the acoustics within woodlands and forests. Owl calls are 70 times more likely to be heard when it is dry outside.
the male Loon has a distinctive loud yodel that is a clear threat to other birds. a scientist once translated it as "come near me and i will pull all your feathers out:! Loons radically change their tunes when they move to a new home apparently to make sure they sound different than the birds already living there and it is a signal they are not to be messed ith.
Male Bronzed-Winged Jacanas live in a harem ruled by one female. all the birds start yelling when plying for her attention.
like musical instruments different shaped beaks make different shaped sounds. heavy beaks designed to crush seeds make deeper less complicated sounds than slim beaks designed to snatch insects heavy beaks can't catch the same range or trill as fast as those with smaller beaks.
the deepest voiced voiced bird is the Cassowary which is the second largest bird next to the ostrich. it uses low frequency infra-sound used by only one other land lving animal, the Elephant. its call can be pitched as low as 23 Hertz, the bottom range humans can hear.
the black-coped chickadee uses a graded system of warning cries. the :seer: sound warns of predators from Hawks and Owls and warns other birds to take cover. a full "chickadee" warns of a resting predator such as an Owl perched near by. Nuthatches and small Woodpeckers recognize this sound and join groups of Chickadees to flock together and crowd the predator until it flies away. the most serious call warns of the Pygmy Owl which Chickadees find hard to evade. their call then sounds like" chick-a-dee-dee-dee-dee" which warns the flocks to scatter.
Cori takes a bow and Boo Boo takes a towel and wraps it around Coris neck and leads her off of the stage.


love Cori and Boo Boo (campaign mgr.)
