At least 4 males exploring the apple trees, and singing from high perches.
My report of "First Robin Song" was a Dawn Song. But I heard many songs during that first day. I heard True Song, Dawn Song (these mostly in the morning), Peek and Tut, and Whinny (we have cats), and the See call (which I did not know was a robin -- we do have red-tailed hawks in the area).
These calls are from four different male robins. Either that, or the same two fellas are following each other around the property, which is about 10 acres. I hear two who are contesting for locations near the farmhouse. The other two are out amongst the apple trees. I did not see a "wave" this year.
I have not heard the Zee-Up call.
Multiple males singing from high perches. These male robins have only been here about a week. I haven't seen females yet, nor have I seen any courting behavior. They certainly are putting in a lot of hours, practicing their music. They aren't just clearing their throats!
