Birds of KY: Encore photo of Robin of City Hall singing encore



2018-06-09 - Reed Street side of City Hall, 116 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, ColumbiaMagazine.com.
You've probably stayed awake a many a night wondering how many times a day a robin sings its many songs. I know I have. But my mind is at ease knowing that more scientific folks are already working on it. Probably you'll be surprised at the number of performances they do each day. Take a guess, then take a look at this sight: www.learner.org/jnorth/tm/robin/VocalizationSongStudy.html. Hope someone will collect data on Robin of City Hall - may it could get us into the World Record Book of Guinnesses, when the Jaycee Chili Bowl couldn't. - EW
