For over 3 months now we have had an adult robin singing early morning, off and on all day, and every evening! Robins fledged in our yard quite a while ago so I, too, have been wondering why all this why all the noise this late in summer. Yes, they often nest at least once more but surely he has established his territory by now. 3+ months?? I marvel at the energy it takes this fellow to belt out his song all day.

Or house wrens which can be very irksome.

They’ve been heard here in Jericho Center, along the LaPlatte in Shelburne, in the New North End of Burlington, and in Milton. I haven’t heard one yet, but I’m wondering if the mystery birds are young Red-eyed Vireos trying out their father’s song. This is a species that specializes in incessant!
