Singing Winter into Spring

Have you ever noticed that the first spring bird songs begin as early as late January? Our year-round residents have started singing to claim their territories and advertise for mates, and it’s actually the best time to begin learning bird song. Familiarizing yourself with their songs is much easier before the migrants and summer residents create a complex ensemble that sounds like everyone’s singing at once!
