Why Are Birds So Noisy At First Light? — ‘The Why’

Welcome to the newest of edition The Why. “Why are birds so noisy at first light?” you ask? Good question. Timely too. (Yeah you guessed it. We’re actually using this one to put off researching another one of those questions of a bizarre and deviant nature. Bukkake? Does that come with egg roll? For all we know, Bukkake is the name of the 67th Governor of Massachusetts. Now I feel like a poor man’s Dennis Miller, mmmkay? Can you even buy a ticket to this show without a college degree? )

For those who live in urban areas and have never been awakened by noisy birds, you’ll just have to trust us. Birds truly do make a racket first thing in the morning. The question is why are birds so noisy at first light? Instead of whipping it out and p*ssing on stuff to mark their territory they just wake everyone up announcing it to the world.

But let’s bring in our guests for this column. C. Clairborne Ray of The New York Times online confirms that “in the hours around dawn, individual birds announce their ownership of territory to rivals and advertise to attract mates.” Greg Budney, curator for collections development at the Macaulay Library of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology also confirmed this.

Ray also reports that in numerous species, the predawn bird chorus if you will “is specifically about territoriality or male-male rivalry” adding that “at dawn, male birds switch to a song aimed at attracting a mate.”

She concludes that the birds are basically “engaged in aggressive ‘song matching’, essentially saying, ‘Anything you can sing, I can sing louder, because this is my territory’.”

Why are birds so noisy at first light? Now you know.

You ask the questions. We provide the answers.
