Workshop focuses on 'bird language'

The Elkhart Truth, Ind.

Apr. 8—NEW PARIS — As we venture outside this spring, our ears are being greeted by a sound we have not heard in months — singing birds.

There are certain bird calls we are all familiar with — a robin's melodious "cheerily-cheer-up", a dove's soft coos, the brash "con-quer-eee" of a Red-Winged Blackbird — but voices of other birds may be a complete mystery to us.
