Robin song and Mysterious Raven

Robin song and Mysterious Raven

Shares

Okay, this guy was singing early in the dawn, but a bit in the distance, and it sounded like another robin was signing with him.

Anyone know if that really happens, or just an illusion? Maybe I conflated his song with a house finch?

For that matter, a raven was very noisy, very agitated, this morning, and when I got outside to see what was happening, he circled twice. What's the deal with that?

Robins sing really early in the day; they're often the first birds one notices in the "dawn chorus".
I worked my way through college as a campus security guard. I remember one time, when I'd been up all night watching a campus building where a new wing was being constructed, when I walked through an outdoor courtyard just as the sky was beginning to lighten. I caught a glimpse of movement as something flew into the top of a tall conifer, and the bird-watcher in me wondered what it was. A few seconds later the notes of a robin's song drifted down.
That was 20 years ago, but I still remember that moment. Something about that singing drifting out over the still-sleeping landscape was indescribably poignant; to this day the robin's song is one of my favorites.
Anyway, I think it's quite possible that you were hearing two male robins on adjoining territories.
On your raven, it's hard to know what it was doing. Ravens are generally thought to be one of the most intelligent birds, though, so whatever it was up to, I bet it was interesting.
