Birds Singing at 2am

I am still up from the night before and working at my business partners house, and we started to hear birds sing???

This is crazy it is not even 2am here.

I made a similar observation years ago in this post about birds singing early, but that was at 2:45. They are getting earlier.

Are the birds singing earlier by you too?

There’s always a few, coming home late from the seed bar, singing in the middle of the night. Probably confused by the city lights.

It’s actually a pleasant, hopeful “thing of Spring” to be awakened by birdsong. Small payback for all the money I . . my wife . . spends on birdseed. We went through 120 pounds of seed in the first 6 weeks of 2010. Of course, the wild turkeys that decided to winter over eat more than their share. Wish I knew how to pluck and clean ’em. 😉

I have a bird that starts to sing at 2 am thru 5 am every night. It really does amaze me. It really sounds so relaxing to hear. However, I am looking for the type of bird that I’m hearing. Does anyone have a idea?

I just wanted to sy that it is happening in London ontario also.
it is now 3:30am and theu are singing nd i know for a fact that they did not used to sing until 5 at the earliest for my whole life!
I believe that it is changes in our magnetosphere that are confusing the birds and I also think that this proves that they are NOT reacting to light as a precursor to their morning song!

I too have started hearing birds singing a 2am in the morning, I live in London and I too think it is strange because they did not used to start singing until dawn.
