What is With This G*&%##^&(*) Bird?

Every night for weeks now, just as I settle down to bed there is a bird outside my window that starts to ‘sing’!
What’s up with that?
It’s the freaking middle of the night!
Go the hell to sleep!
And he keeps it up ALL night.
Until just before dawn.
I’m assuming it’s a Mockingbird because his ‘song’ is all over the place, not a repeated melody.
And if I’m not hallucinating one of the 'songs' he 'sings'  sounds suspiciously like the trill of a cell phone ring tone! 


  1. It must be in a tree?..cut the tree down!!!
    Love your drawing, perfect :)

  2. It's mocking you! How frustrating! But still... it inspired you to make a fun illustration :)

  3. S/he is singing you a lullabye. “Remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it.
    “Your father’s right,” she said. “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy . . . but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”

  4. i feel for you. i have a noisy bird who likes to wake me every morning at 4 AM. Every. Morning.

  5. Great drawing......... but I think perhaps that bird is trying to sing you a song.... too bad he's no singing you to sleep....perhaps he is your animal totem and you should be paying attention to something he is trying to tell you....lol.

  6. Reminds me of a gull I used to know. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA he used to say. And then he would add: 'ha ha'. Then, he would continue from where he started.
    Good luck with yours!

  7. You have birds with cell phones in FL? Hahaha. Mock on you ;)

  8. The birds sing here at 3 AM when it is getting light (it is still light at midnight when I head to bed) and when they start my husband gets up to shut the window, that I love to keep open. Last night I heard the birds, but hubby didn't get up! I found out why this morning - he was wearing ear plugs!
    So perhaps you should try some - the orange or purple ones work the best!

    Oh yah - as for what type of camera I use - I have a Canon Power Shot SX10 - I like it, but I also use Picasa (a free online photo program) before showing images on my blog.


I appreciate your comments!
