Copycat… errr… bird
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!
