I don't know what they're saying, but I imagine high drama :)
Connie on Ko-fi
[Single-panel comic illustration of a girl walking through Central Park, enjoying the melodic sounds of birds. There are musical notes in the background, along with colorful pink and white tree blossoms, yellow daffodils. She has a serene expression on her face, thinks to herself, "Ah...is there anything as relaxing as birdsong??" Meanwhile, there's bold text in yellow speech bubbles with translations of what the birds appear to be saying: "Get your feathers OFF my man, Susan! / Frank, you dirty, LYING CHEAT!! / Baby, just give me a chance - / Look, I can bench 3 bagels! / This next one goes out to all the lonely, broken-hearted birds out there..." Cartoon titled "Birdsong of Spring." Original artwork by Connie Sun, cartoonconnie, 2023.]
The ones who sing are the males, marking their territory and hoping to attract a mate. So basically it's "I'm here, this is MY patch...Hey babe, hey babe, shake that feathered thang!"
Correct, Anna! Very Darwinian! Whale calls, too!
