What birds sing at night? Not a joke...

There's a bird that comes around every summer and sings about 20 different tunes for half the night.

I thought most birds slept all night.

WTF bird is this that sings all damn night?

EDIT: Northern California is the area if that wasn't obvious.

Not all birds sleep at night. Owls are nocturnal. They don't "sing" though.

I knew about Owls, but this bird is singing, not being inquisitive.

Mockingbirds sing at night and they have a nearly endless range of different sounds...

When I lived in an apartment in Houston all of the mocking birds sang the car alarm tones... they'd actually go through the 4 different alarm sounds (ambulance, police, fire, whatever the other is). Funny at first, but annoying after a while.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly
Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Blackbird fly
Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

That sounds like the bird that comes around my house at night. It drives me nuts. My room is at the front of the house and it sounds like the bird hangs out in front of my window all night long.

I think that says more about you than it does about the bird.
