I’ll give you “tweety bird”!

20 09 2006

I love the sound of birds chirping in the morning as I drift in and out of consciousness around 5am, preparing mentally for the day in front of me. And as spring is here and the mornings are getting lighter, the early morning bird chorus is a delight.

But what’s with a bird starting its song at 11pm??? And not stopping…

For some time now (not just full moon when I know some birds get confused with the amount of light), there’s this one bird nearby that wakes up sometime around 11pm and starts in on his/her song. Twitter, twitter, cheep, cheep. Delightful at 5am. Rage inducing at 11pm when I’m trying to get to sleep!

We get those late night chirpers here all the time. Quite disconcerting. The cats get excited and sit at the window twitching and trying to see who’s singing.

In summer we get moaning frogs in our front and backyards. Occasionally one will find its way to the spa and have a good old swim around, which again, drives the cats crazy.
