It is in spring that we realise that `robins certainly haven’t exhausted themselves by singing day and night throughout the winter. If anything, they have been saving themselves for a burst of activity.
You probably haven’t got a garden pond big enough for a pair of swans to do their pas de deux, but even a mini wetland may appeal to a pair of Mallard. Unfortunately, Mallard courtship isn’t exactly...
In spring, potential partners display to each other, with the male invariably taking the lead. Some displays are amongst the most bizarre and beautiful sights in nature.
Males sing to proclaim their territory –announcing to other males that “this is my patch” – and also to attract a mate.
As the temperature rises , so does the volume. Early spring is an excellent time to get to know bird songs, not least because there are still no leaves on the trees (except the evergreens of course) and it is easier to spot the singer.
