If you too find difficulty in remembering how to sing bird songs authentically, you are not alone! According to a BBC article, the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals over in Britain) has been playing bird songs to young birds that don’t have their parents around to learn from. Apparently this is most important for males – if they can’t sing properly, their territory may not be respected, and female birds won’t choose them for a partner. Does make me wonder how the chicks know which song they are supposed to learn, and whether any male birds get confused and answer the call of another male?
