Q. Do birds have ears?
A. Yes, they do! They're just hidden under feathers called auriculars that cover the ear openings on the sides of their head.
Like humans, birds have an outer ear, a middle ear, and an inner ear. Feathers cover the ear opening to protect it and cut the wind noise. But if you ever see a bald bird (more common in Blue Jays and Northern Cardinals), you might have the opportunity to see their ear openings!
