But is language supposed to change how a bird sounds? Or do you mean "how bird sounds are called in different languages"?

I believe he is referring to the way a speaker of certain language will imitate the sound of a bird. For Spanish this is correct, pio pio is the sound for chicks. There is a famous song called Los Pollitos, and the song says that the chicks say pio pio pio when they are hungry, when they are cold......

This is great, the word for owl in Spanish is buho and it must be somewhat onomatopoeiac because we have an owl in our forest who sound like a man hiding in the pines yelling buho



Also cockerel (rooster) in English says cock-a-doodle-doo !
