As to why we love hearing birds sing, American biologist E.O.Wilson coined the term "biophilia" for our deep human need to connect with nature. Ironically, of course, birdsong has a quite different biological origin, with two purposes: to drive away rival males, and to attract females.
Or as performance poet A.F.Harrold so succinctly put it: 
"Fuck off - or - Fuck me."
