Mice sing too! Male mice specifically have distinct vocal patterns, which we perceive as squeaks but in reality resemble the songs of birds, according to digital analysis by researchers from the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna, Austria.

Each male mouse produces such a distinct tune of his own that scientists feel this variety may be the means by which female mice avoid inbreeding ("Male Mice Sing Melodic Tunes to Attract Females,", Jan. 27, 2012). These melodies attract female mice and are a part of the marvelous mechanism God created to help animals in reproduction.
