Bird Theme Gift Box
Posted on 22 March 2012
During the spring and early summer, it’s not just the milk van that will wake you early – it’s dawn chorus time again.
From March to July, those feathered alarm clocks are at it again, as they defend their territories and sing to attract a mate.
As winter turns to spring, the lengthening daylight switches male songbirds into breeding mode.
Singing is hard work, and uses hard won food reserves, so it is the fittest, best-fed males who produce the strongest, most impressive song. Females therefore choose a mate who sings best, because such a male is more likely to be good at raising chicks, to have a good territory, or to pass successful genes to their young.
In many species, once the female has been attracted, the male will sing less often. A bird that sings on and on, late into the season, is probably a lonely batchelor who has failed to attract a mate.
