Listen closely to birds, and you'll notice that their lilting melodies don't always resemble chirps. Beginner birders who want to learn to identify—and mimic—avian songs can get a crash course by watching the video below, spotted by Slate and filmed by Cornell University's Lab of Ornithology.

Produced as part of the Lab of Ornithology's new online course for birding enthusiasts, the video shows students demonstrating 10 different kinds of song. See how many you can identify for yourself—and if you get stumped, visit the Lab's original YouTube post for a full rundown identifying the species behind each song.
