Question: B>Question: Why do birds sing?

Take your time.


And, The Answer Is:

The Answer:

  • Why is the sky blue?

  • Why does the sun rise?

  • Why do fools fall in love?
  • We're really getting down to bedrock with this question, which is only two degrees of separation from, "What is life?"

    Have you noticed that there are few sopranos among the birdies?

    Singing is generally a guy thing in the feathered set.

    One reason for it is to stake out territory, which is lot neater than how many other animals accomplish the same thing peeing all over the place instead of putting up a fence.

    And, hey, you can't nest alone.

    Mr. Bird breaks into song when he's on the make.

    Birds who sing the most usually have marked out territory rich in food.

    That's what the female birds are looking for: a guy with the goods.

    They don't care if he can't carry a tune, as long as he can put worms on the table.
