Spring Birdsong Playlist


birdsong playlist

Have you ever noticed that birds seem to get louder and sing more during the spring season? Well, you’re not imagining things. Birdsong is a key indicator of the spring season, as more migratory birds return to their homes to mate. Birdsong is usually generated by the male birds to attract a mate, as well as to sometimes establish their territory. Along with what we consider “songs,” birds also have a wide variety of calls they use to communicate with each other.

To get a sense of the birdsongs of spring, listen to our curated playlist featuring the songs and calls of blackbirds, robins, sparrows, thrushes, tits, finches and more!

Happy birdsong listening!
