Radio wire is often used to make bird nests. What station do they listen to?

I have to think that birds are total music snobs. Although they must love the standards and traditional songs, when they perform, they have to make the song their own. They modify and create music for all the reasons we do: to claim territory, to find love, to delight in the sound of one's own voice.
