International Dawn Chorus Day is an annual event that celebrates the sounds of nature and the beauty of bird song. It takes place on the first Sunday in May every year, which is the time when the dawn chorus is at its peak.

The dawn chorus is the natural symphony of bird song that occurs in the early hours of the morning, before sunrise. It is a time when many species of birds, including robins, blackbirds, thrushes, and warblers, sing together in a chorus that can be heard for miles around. The dawn chorus is a natural phenomenon that occurs in many parts of the world, and it is one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring sounds in nature.

International Dawn Chorus Day is also a time to raise awareness about the threats facing birds and their habitats. Many species of birds are in decline due to habitat loss, climate change, and other human activities. By celebrating the beauty of bird song and raising awareness about the importance of protecting birds and their habitats, we can help to ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy the sounds of the dawn chorus.
