One night in June, at about 1:30 a.m., I was awakened by the loud singing 
of several robins. To my amazement, the robins were shortly joined by many 
other species of birds that normally sing during the day. The birds never 
stopped singing, and it was so loud that I never slept that night. Is this 
normal, and if so, why did it occur?
