Birds have a variety of courtship displays that are used to attract a mate. Once a mate has been obtained, the reproduction process begins. Many birds, but not all, are monogamous for at least the breeding season.
Mating usually involves the male pressing himself against the female in order to transfer his sperm via a structure called a cloaca.
Birds do mate severally especially during the breeding season due to the fact the sex hormones are usually very active and they cannot resist the desire. However, fertilisation takes place after the very first instance of copulation.
When birds are in mating season you can view how they mate of you have some good binoculars. Birds mate when the female are lifting there chest and the male are on top the the female.
For the most part, a single male and female will stay together during an entire mating season. Courtship is up to the male. He will sing, dance, and use tail drumming to lure his female. You can find more information here: http://www.ehow.com/how-does_4567334_birds-mate.html
