The songs of spring.
Birds pairing in spring
Birds (actually all animals) search for partners in the springtime. After they have paired up with a companion then they crossbreed. Following this, they have youngsters during the summertime who have, hopefully, grown enough to go their own ways by the fall.
After the fledglings have left, the adults which paired up and may each go their own ways or they may not because they are paired up for life.
Holding materials to build nest.
Nest of Bohemian Waxwing.
We will know that spring is here,
When we are more aware of chirps and cheers.
In early spring males sing from dawn,
'Til it's dusk and late.
'Cause they are searching for,
Their perfect mate.
Once they find their mate which
They like the best,
The male guards the grounds,
The female builds the nest.
After the nest is made,
Then the eggs are laid.
The little chicks we do not see,
‘Til spring is over and they fly free.
