    Is there a bird in South Florida that sings mostly at night?

    I spend the past weekend at my mother's place and experienced something very peculiar... the most beautiful singing... this bird was singing non-stop and had a least 7 different "songs," however it was in the middle of the night and my Mom said that this has been going on for a while and that this bird sings every night and sometimes during the day. Is this unusual?

    We hear birds singing at night, too (we're just north of Fort Lauderdale), but I don't know what kind they are. There are quite an assortment of beautiful and unusual birds down here.

    This is most likely the Mockingbird. This species mimics all bird songs and has quite a repetoire. The male will sing at night in the Spring when he is seeking a mate. I think this is actually Florda's state bird. They sing day and night and have probably had to dodge some flying shoes from grumpy sleepers!
