Birds in the Spring is a Silly Symphonies animated Disney Short film. It was released in 1933.


Various birds are seen building nests and caring for eggs. One pair anxiously awaits the hatching of three eggs, the joyfully summons all the other birds to see their new, noisy hatchlings. Time jumps forward to when the hatchlings are fully fledged, learning to sing and fly. One becomes lost and explores the ground, encountering grasshoppers, humming birds and then a rattlesnake that attempts to eat the baby bird. The bird manages to lead the snake into tying itself into a knot, but the chick takes shelter in a hornet's nest. The parents rescue it from the angry hornets, and the film ends with the father bird spanking the chick.
