Copy­cat… errr… bird

Wild - - DID YOU KNOW... -

Just like tod­dlers, young song­birds mimic (mir­ror) their par­ents when they learn to talk. And just like tod­dlers, it sounds like bab­bling to start. Bab­bling helps ba­bies learn how to speak, and similarly, bab­bling helps song­birds learn to sing. While young song­birds try to im­i­tate their par­ents’ songs, they’ll make mis­takes, but they’ll also learn from them. That’s how they learn to sing cor­rectly. Try and try again!
