Please explain the quote :

Remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it.
“Your father’s right,” she said. “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy . . . but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”
plz mark my answer as the best answer plzzzzzzzz :)


It means
Sheriff Tate has decided not to investigate either Jem or Arthur "Boo" Radley for the killing of Bob Ewell. In the course of his argument with Atticus, Sheriff Tate says about Arthur, "draggin’ him with his shy ways into the limelight—to me, that’s a sin." Sheriff Tate has decided that Bob Ewell fell on his knife. At that point, Atticus and Scout have a brief exchange during which Scout appears to understand the metaphorical relationship of Arthur Radley and a mockingbird.
