The Vienna Songbirds compete in the Cosmic Underleague.

Created in 1996 the Songbirds had a strong season last year getting all the way to the Underleague Cosmic Series where they lost to another rookie team, the Pranktown Busriders. The Songbirds are thematically related to the Middle League's Delta Dragons. Both teams are about music and musicians.

If this year's Songbirds perform as well as last year's, and there haven't been any substantial roster changes, it is likely that these birds will next year move up to the Middle League.
