I noticed it a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned it on a thread here about the animals behaving oddly. I work at night, 3rd, and have noticed they are loudly chirping, all night long, moon or not, rain or no rain, fog, it doesn't matter. I am also noting that they are making nests around our house in the most odd areas! Our fireplace for one, I know that may be common to some, but it never happened to us before, but also inside of the gutters, under the shelter in the yard, inside an old tire.

I added a post to another thread months back but I would have to search here to find it. There was an article by researchers in Europe that states some birds have become more talkative at night because of day time traffic noises. The night gives them the chance to be better heard.

I also agree with those that state it is not really unusual. At night if I go out with a light around my birds they with state acting much like they day time selfs. I do not think is necessarily a day on, night off situation for all birds.

For the past 10 years plus I have been a bartender or bar owner and up late just about every night for years and years...and I don't remember ever hearing birds chirping at night until a few weeks ago here...I am in Cincinnati, OH.

A few weeks ago I was posting on ATS, watching TV in the background and heard tons of birds start chirping and I glanced at the clock on the task bar thinking "Oh crap I have lost track of time and it's 6am" only to discover it was only 1am...and I thought how WEIRD and I even went outside to see if it was a full moon and perhaps it was so bright out the birds "thought" mistakenly it was daylight...I have been up late playing on the internet, games and such since '98 and always have the window open in the room and am pretty sure until this year I have not ever heard birds chirping like this before 4am or I hear owls a lot all night, but just your general songbirds, no.

I was thinking there had to be a reason for it, but it sure is weird, thanks for this thread

I recorded this last night with my camera. Denmark, 2 am in the night. The audio volume is a bit low, I know. I had to upload the raw unedited video. The video is 1½ minute long. Turn up the volume (I swear this is no trick). Does anyone know what kind of bird that is? That bird (or whatever it was) kept going for another hour. Freaked out my cat too.

I have wondered about this myself some time ago and the only reason
that i remember this because how odd of an experience it was at the time.
I kept hearing these sounds in the middle of the night and found out they were birds.

I can say when birds roost such like crows they will holdup in huge groups sometimes 10000's and esp do this at night,they are one of the most weary social birds.Im in the northeast us and i heard birds esp robins when i go to bed at 4am.

I live in N.E. Louisiana, and just last week, I noticed for the first time ever, that birds were chirping between 1 and 2 in the morning.

Guess its the mating season as explained upthread, but it is interesting that I have never noticed until now, and I'm a night person.

I think it isn't normal also. There is a thread going on right now about animals,birds... acting strange lately. I never had this many birds chirping late hours before. They get on the electric light pole lines and chirp away. Many critters acting weird all over past month or so. I say something is causing it.I don't know what it is, though. (Dogs, cats , also acting strange; my dog especially at night).

I live in Southern California and have been hearing birds chirping for well over a month now. It is only one particular type of bird but I can hear one down the street from me and then quite a few coming from different areas as well. One started coming to the tree by my window but that quickly stopped when I got a ladder and broomstick out a few nights in a row. It is really quite annoying when you have a sleeping problem.

I moved to SouthCentral Louisiana from Michigan last summer. In October, 2007, I started hearing birds chirping in the middle of the night. I thought that maybe this was a bird found only in the south or something. I went back to Michigan during Christmas; no birds chirping at night, maybe because it was FREEZING and there usually aren't ANY birds there at that time of the year). Anyhow, judging from this site, this is happening all over the country. I've NEVER heard birds chirping at night in the 38 years that I've been alive. This is just strange to me.
As a matter of fact, there is a bird chirping right now and it's 3:11 AM. The noise doesn't bother me... I find it to be relaxing and serene. It's just not right. Birds chirp at dawn, not at the witching hour.
What's going on????

I've been waiting for someone to post about this.

I have been a night person as long as I can remember.
I'm always up very very late.. sometimes not going to sleep until around 6AM.

In the past, I've outside smoking cigarettes alot of the time because I don't smoke inside. no birds chirping

Until this year.

They are so damn loud.. tons of them.. chirp chirp chirp.
they just started doing this.. as of these past 2 years.

I know about birds and night time patterns. and I know my area..

and either this is different birds from a totally different area... who had different sleeping patterns.. moving here all of a sudden because of something with the magnetosphere.. screwing up with their normal yearly cycle of migration..

or its something screwing with their sleeping schedule period.

either way.. they're annoying.

somethings different.
something's causing this..

I think this is a good point. I've heard that several bird species who usually live in Siberia (Russia), have been discovered in Denmark for the first time. I guess the climate changes, and some of the birds move to other places. And some of them might chirp at night...

Btw, I'm sorry about the low audio in my video in the other post. It was recorded through my camera. And because of a missing audio codec on my computer, I had to upload it unedited to Youtube. Maybe some audio pro can make a better audio file out of it? Or maybe I'll do it myself when I can find time to do it. It's nothing to see in that video anyway. And it's safe to play it loud. There are no sudden screams or similar. Only very low audio. I still don't know what bird that was...

...or whether it's extraterrestial.

My mother was recently telling me that animals acted strangely before an earthquake. This topic came about because of the recent earthquake in central China. It was something I knew already, but I suddenly remembered that the birds outside my window started chirping at around 1 AM in the morning. When she heard this, she said that the birds outside her windows chirped all night as well, and it kind of scared her.

For whatever reason, the time that the birds start to chirp keeps getting earlier and earlier: about a month ago, they started to chirp around 1:30 or 2 in the morning; now they are starting at around 12:30 in the morning. I have no idea what is causing them to chirp, but it is really freaky.

I remember last year whenever I stayed up all night, the birds started to chirp at the time when the sky turned from dark to early-morning blue. It seemed natural and it seemed right; what's happening now does not seem natural at all. I'm used to it by now, but it's really something that I'm itching to get an explanation.

I live in Ottawa Ontario or just a little south in a suburb. The birds here too are up earlier than ever before. Normally they're up around 4:30 - 4:45. All this spring they've been chirping at 3:15 - 3:30 and then stop around 4:30.

It's enough to make me keep my windows closed at night. I have no idea what has gotten into them!

Well, you can add Hokkaido to the list, if anyone is making one.

I started noticing this about 2 weeks ago, maybe three.. Been in this place for 5 years - and I've always been a "windows open" kind of person. Never noticed it before, at least not with any kind of consistency. You get the occasional burst of "danger! danger!" bird noise, but it's never to this extreme. For the record, I'm well outside of the city, with minimal lighting in the area.

I tend to get a bit skittish when it starts up, because I'm half convinced that an earthquake is about to hit. Nothing to remark on yet.
