This Whip-poor-will is a true night bird--feeding, mating, and nesting in the dark. But a few songbirds that are active during the day also sing at night.
Most renowned is the Nightingale of Europe and Asia. In North America, for about a week each spring, the Yellow-breasted Chat also sings in the darkness.
