Left the windows open last night. At 4:45 this morning, while still dark out, I was awakened by the first bird of the morning singing loud and constant. Peewee.

We’ve had pewees all spring, but none were singing constantly all day, as you describe, until May 31. Now it’s constant and sounds exhausting. I’m guessing that the male lost his mate, or possibly the fledglings have gone and the pair is starting over?
We have had an eastern wood-pewee calling in our Joplin yard again.
We think of northern cardinals as the first to 'get up" and to "retire"
However, our eastern wood-pewee calls first in the morning and is still
singing at 9:15 pm ! The northern cardinals have gone to roost !
