Male songbirds sport their brightest plumage and finest song in the spring. Usually inconspicuous, quiet, and difficult to see, birds' characteristic songs often help you to identify the bird, or at least help pinpoint its location. We'll talk about how and why birds sing songs and take a walk using our ears first, then our eyes.
