Why do robins sing in the evening?
In this regard, why are the birds singing at night?
Birds use songs to attract mates, defend territories, and to warn of dangers. They are triggered to start singing in the morning by the first light from the sun and at night sunset gives them the cues they need to stop singing.
Also, why are birds so loud at 4am? It can start as early as 4:00 a.m. and last several hours. Birds can sing at any time of day, but during the dawn chorus their songs are often louder, livelier, and more frequent. It's mostly made up of male birds, attempting to attract mates and warn other males away from their territories.
Similarly, it is asked, how do I stop my bird from singing at night?

Are Robins active at night?
Robins are one of the first birds to start the dawn chorus and one of the last to stop singing at night, even in the winter when they sing to defend their winter territories. They are often mistaken for nightingales, despite being one of the most common night-time singers in Britain.
