i have noticed threads on birds dying recently, though i havnt witnessed any, i have noticed something weird in birds behaviour lately

i have been trying to get this thread started for a while now. it is currently 2am in London. all week i have noticed that birds are very active and singing at night. the energy in the air is like its summer and dawn time...but it is the middle of winter. very very weird.

i have researched what birds sing at night,it is only owls and nightingales. but i am hearing and seeing robins, blu-tits etc. the reason they have online is that due to high traffic noises during the day that drowns out their calls, birds have resorted to singing at night... i have lived here for 30 yrs, there is no increase in traffic noises plus
birds dont think...they just do. so why are they so loud and active between 12 and 3 am.

my own personal theory is earths magnetic field and the seasons becoming two rather than 4. even i am compelled to stay up lately...theirs just so much energy......

Anyone else noticed our birds crazieness

Birds have been singing at night for as long as I remember. It's the streetlights that do it.

Yep I'm in London too and there are birds singing outside my house right now. 3am

I've noticed it for about a year or more now though. I did read that birds in cities have adapted to night singing in order to be heard over the traffic noise of the day time, I will try to find a link

Edit

Here is the promised link link

Here in the southern USA, we have mocking birds and whippoorwills that usually only sing at night. But they're only here in the spring and summer months.

Very strange behavior - in all my years I have only heard owls and nightengales at night and I have lived in a lot of different locations. Has anyone else in your area experienced this? Have you seen them in the trees (sometimes that possible on a moon lit night) or on the ground? S & F

I was literally just about to start the same thread! I'm in Bournemouth UK and all types birds are going nuts outside my house between 12 and 4am every morning recently. They are actually so loud I'm finding it difficult to sleep with the window open. Something is not right here!

Here here!

I noticed that last night. The dawn chorus is usually 'time for bed' but it wasn't even that late.



Peace (if you can get any)

Over here they're not just singing, they're rapping too. The crows are all doing this 'Gangsta' thing and I got a Cardinal doing a Sinatra retrospective.

Here in the Netherlands we noticed also that blackbirds were allready singing at 4.30 in the morning when everything is still dark as night. Besides this we are very hyperactive all day long, also going to sleep is sometimes hard.

Well, maybe it's going to be an early spring this year. Birds and plants sometimes seem to know these things, when we humans don't.

I heard that a while ago, nature is amazing at times.

I live in a City and get the odd time at night when they all kick off. i think it's usually one rowdy little fella who gets the others joning in.

Its nesting season in Florida for ospreys and eagles so it won't be long before we start hearing the chicks peep peep peeping to be fed. Hopefully the gulf oil spill hasn't messed anything up near the fishing grounds.
