Female birds are certainly capable of singing, but generally they do not. Singing is used to attract mates, and females are the ones judging a mate by their song. Singing also defends and establishes territories, so again, males would be the ones to do this. Females might send out a call to her young, but a call is different from singing. Also, male birds have well-developed vocal cords for singing.
Like Meg707 said, usually males sing, because they are the ones to attract mates and secure the territory, but females also have the ability. In fact, a study of cardinals showed that not only do girls sings, they also pick up songs much faster than male cardinals. In some species, a mated pair will sing together, alternating in a duet, so they sounds more powerful.
