Internet spiral led to some papers on synthesized birdsong:
you can hear audio samples of the former, here:
The zebra-finch to me kind of like air wheezing out of a balloon... which I think is still indicative of good progress, in a way, in that it does sound like a real-world acoustic process.

Hey, that's my officemate one summer!

The audio clips sound like they are the excitation source and they'll want some filtering... ah, described as "syrinx model", so I think it's like you're listening to your glottal pulse train before it goes through your series of tubes.

Hmmm the papers talk about a beak model also, so I think they may be somewhat filtered. Dunno, I think they sound fantastic just as interestingly-complex-synthesized-sounds. I'ma try to email her and see if she has an implementation she's willing to share.
