That very bird loop shows up on a number of Pink Floyd albums actually.
It's on The Wall, in several places (and I also remember hearing it in the
concert as well); and Animals as well, on the "Dogs" side.  I remember 
disappointed in the Animals collection, by the way, because I had been
expecting something of a full-on take on George Orwell's "Animal Farm".
Alas.  However!

This weekend's Loop Of The Week will be addressing this issue, as well as
others, as a matter of fact.  I'm going to incorporate birds into it, as a
hint.  Nee-ha!
