Hee hee :) - I have an interest in synthesizing bird song since making a 
wacky musical 'instrument' (one small part of this: 
http://caveofsounds.com/) that makes bird sounds by throwing together 
some AM and FM, techniques I got at the time from Andy Farnell's website 
Just now I was having another look through his book "Designing Sound" 
and he mentions Snd in it (and uses it for diagrams).

I was shocked to find that this program has flown under my radar for so 
long - it's more or less the audio editor I've always wanted (as a long 
time Emacs user and lover of programmable tools). And that it comes with 
a goldmine of synthesis code and information - including those 
wonderfully realistic bird sounds - there's a lot for me to explore here.
