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.
