A Sure Sign of Spring

Nothing in my mind is a surer sign of spring than American Robins singing in the middle of the night. We have a male that has set up territory in our neighbors backyard. I have heard the bird as early as 4:00am this past week and shot this yesterday around 6:45am on my phone. The microphone on my phone doesn't usually pick up sound all that well so that gives you an idea of how loud this bird is.

@Anonymous: It definitely is! This morning this guy was blasting away at 4:00am just outside our window. Come July it will be quiet in the AM again--and I'll definitely miss the sounds.
