Wednesday night peace and quiet!

Loyal readers, just listen to this! This is what we have to put up with. This is kuovi, our local curlew. He sits on the roof of the next house, just a few metres from our catio and he yells. And yells. And yells. This was taken at 11pm and we think there should be a limit on how many decibels he is allowed to pump out.
He's very brave and we have seen him chase hawks, which are much bigger than him. But we haven't forgiven him for frightening Lewis-veli three years ago when he flew towards the balcony and shy Lewis was there relaxing. Poor Lewis thought the world was going to end.

We hear the curlews flying down by the river. Sometimes they fly overhead and we think they sound very eery when they call in the middle of the night. We have a bigger problem with the owl that sits on the telephone pole outside the bedroom window.

Very loud! We are listening to goldfinches singing in the trees and on the arials.

We sympathize as we have barn owls in the attic that serenade us most nights...

His song actually sounds nice...but we wouldn't want to hear it for hours on end.

We have freight trains that pass in the night, less than 2kms away. Does that count? LOL. You can hear the whistles of all the passenger and freight trains from pretty much anywhere in this small city though.

Sounds like dinner to us! HaHaMeow! Really, he should shut it down about 10 pm!

Why does he yell so much? Does he need to attend anger management classes? purrs

Sparkle said...

With all that anger, I bet his flesh is tough and unappetizing too.

We know your mum loves birds, but maybe, just maybe, you could encourage him to spend his evenings further down the road?

We dont think we have those noisy cerlew birds here. An we're glad of it. Birds should be singful, not loud...

We don't have those birds where we are either, but we do have lots of birdies to watch. At night we only hear the frogs singing - we ignore them.
