Robin singing in the dead of night

This is a video of a European robin.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night‘ is a song line by the Beatles.

The bird which I hear singing in the middle of the night, however, is a smaller relative of the blackbird: the European robin.

There are more unusual things about a robin’s singing.

Unlike other birds, it sings in winter.

Both males and females sing.

Listen and see video here.

Beatles Blackbird song, inspired by the United States civil rights movement: here. And here.
