Ever Wonder Why? … birds sing? Male birds do most of the singing, and they do it to stake out their territory and to invite the female of the species to be their mate. It is interesting that females tend to select as mate those male birds that sing the most. The females do this, it is believed, not because they like the singing but because they have learned that the males that sing the most have the most food in their territory. Since the male doesn’t have to spend much time hunting for food, it has more time to sing.
