Birds don't have typical sex organs. Like fish and reptiles,

males and females alike have a single opening for reproduction and

waste elimination. Males accumulate sperm in semen near this

opening, known as a cloaca. When birds mate they simply touch

cloacae, transferring sperm to the female. This only takes seconds,

but can happen hundreds of times a day.
