Scientists in England have developed a system which can automatically classify the songs of birds to identify them. Researcher Dan Stowell from Queen Mary University of London said classifying the sounds are useful when trying to understand how many, and what type of birds there are in a certain location. He said the songs of birds share some similarities with human language and like people, young songbirds engage in vocal learning. Stowell says researchers are working to develop ways to transcribe all bird sounds from a recording. He adds they want to know, ”Not just who is talking, but when, in response to whom, and what relationships are reflected in the sound, for example who is dominating the conversation.”—Submitted by Jim Sandell

Matthew 10:29–31 (HCSB) Aren’t two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s consent. 30 But even the hairs of your head have all been counted. 31 So don’t be afraid therefore; you are worth more than many sparrows.
