Talking I can only imagine what this sounds like each morning.......





WHERE'S BREAKFAST?







Every morning here at 3:30am there is a mouthy robin that starts to sing in the dark.


I curse this robin because its calls wake up SPX and makes him start to call back to the robin LOUDLY.

This makes me have to get up and drag my sorry butt out of bed.

I have to turn on a fan and radio to create some background white noise to drown out the robin calls.

This morning I heard maybe 3 or 4 different robins calling back and forth over some distance.

While SPX did his loud mouth "I'm a budgie and I will drown you all out with my big noisy call!"



I need to find some tiny ear plugs for my budgie.



I HATE ROBINS!


I hate robins that have messed up internal time clocks.

I have flocks of the pictured critters around me not including 2 of my own plus their cousins the Corella's and they usually don't start calling until around daylight, which at the moment is 6.30 to 7am. I can relate to how annoying it is to be woken at 3am by birds calling, every summer where I used to live we had visitors from Papua New Guinea that migrated to my area and believe me they were a lot noisier than a robin. The males would establish themselves in various trees and call each other at around the same time as your robin and continue on until it was light. One male used to delight in planting himself in the tree right outside my bedroom window and drive me absolutely nuts.

Dang birbs! Always messing with us.


The funny thing is I would probably love to hear all the different birbs where you live as they are nothing like the birbs we have here in Canada. You have the larger colorful destructive people speech mimicking birbs.


Years ago I lived beside a heavily wooded area in the countryside in Eastern Canada and had a rather large rowdy family of crows in a tree right beside my bedroom window. They were noisy!


I found them fascinating and I didn't mind hearing them call and carry on in the early morning it was interesting to hear the crows from somewhere in the distance calling back to them and having a chat with different types of calls.


I'd love to know what birds talk about when they call back and forth.
