Last night, I heard a robin sing.
That is not unusual. Not even during the night. Not even in winter.
This morning, I heard a song thrush sing. My first song thrush song of 2013.
Probably, the bird sang because of relatively mild weather. Song thrushes are sensitive to higher than usual temperatures. Sometimes, they even start to sing in December. Usually, they start their songs in February.
