To portray the birds the composer uses the flute.

What does the German flute look like?

The German flute is a woodwind instrument, but is not made of wood. It is often made of silver.

A woodwind instrument consists of a hollow tube with holes.

Paste in a picture (or a drawing) of a flute.

How is sound produced on the flute?

As soon as wind is blown into the pipe, the wind vibrates inside the pipe.

This causes sound! By opening and closing the holes, the pitch is changed. The longer the air column, the lower the sound; the shorter the air column, the higher the sound.

The Pitch: The notes of the flute are high.
