I have seen this phenomenon once, while on a dove or quail hunt in Arizona and was deeply impressed ... the daytime birds began their morning activities and song, only to shut down when it began to grow dark again.

does false dawn appear mostly at certain times of the year, and what are the conditions that could predict its next appearance.
