Birds! Flying friends are nature's musicians. Twittering, calling, singing, sounding, and wooing, the sounds birds make varies greatly across species, families, continents, and contexts.

So it makes sense that for centuries, birds have inspired musicians and composers. And it also makes sense that the music created that by these assorted avians is just as wide-ranging as the biodiverse group itself!

Whether it's capturing birds through a Baroque lens, Romantic renderings, choral croonings, or modern musical mimicry (or recordings!), enjoy this motley medley of music for birds of all feathers.
