What is a syrinx?

The syrinx is a bird’s vocal organ. The syrinx helps birds to produce sounds, such as cheeps, whistles, caws, tweets, trills, and many other bird calls.

All birds have a syrinx, except emus, ostriches, storks, and vultures.

Birds without a syrinx do not make a sound with their throat.
