To Kill A Mockingbird
My boyfriend is a huge bird nut. One of his favorite birds is the mockingbird. He finds them cute, plucky, and their song to be beautiful.
He's never had one perch outside his window and sing at all hours of the night, until recently.
We have a resident mockingbird who's decided to shout his "Hey Ladies!" song, starting at midnight and going all night. It's hot, so leaving the windows open to air things out means we get the full force of the song. We scared him out of the tree but he just keeps coming back. Hopefully tonight will be better.
As for my boyfriend, I wonder if he'll rethink his choice in feathered favorites.
*EDIT* Well, we scared the bird off at 11, he came back at 4 AM and sang all night. And great news! He's learned how to imitate the wild parrots that live in the area. AWK AWK SHRIEK SHRIEK SHRIEK!
I wonder if there are freelance falconers who will work for cheap.
