Our complex has been overrun by DEVIL BIRDS.
I don’t think it’s just our complex – friends from all over Arkansas are complaining about the unusually loud birds that chirp RIGHT OUTSIDE THEIR BEDROOM WINDOWS, FOR THE LOVE OF PETE, at all hours of the day and night.
For about two weeks now, we’ve been woken up by birds before the sun. I mean really?? Chad gets so flustered that he goes outside and shakes the tree right outside our window (which usually works…for a while). This morning, as I was going to the gym AT 6:30 IN THE MORNING, there was a bird symphony going on. It was SO LOUD and there were SO MANY bird calls from EVERY DIRECTION. Seriously – I can’t put words to it. It was just. so. annoying.
Over the weekend, we tried to have a nice dinner outside on our back patio while the weather is cooperating. However, the birds were SO ANNOYING that we couldn’t even enjoy a nice dinner and conversation – we were just irritated. I don’t usually find chirping birds irritating – this is just a really extreme circumstance.
Some of my friends here in Arkansas know what I’m talking about here. We have friends who have a 2.5 year old and a 2 month old. The devil birds chirp so loudly outside the 2.5 year old’s window that she’s up at 5 a.m. THEY feel our pain. It’s even all over Twitter – the Arkansans have had ENOUGH with the devil birds!
So tell me – is this just an Arkansas thing, or are the devil birds elsewhere? Where are they NOT? I want to move there.
