I have no idea what kind of birds they are.
One of them makes this annoying high pitched "beep". Very Loudly, and only one at a time- with just enough time in between to almost fall back to sleep in between. Almost.
Another one starts with a chirp that goes down in pitch and is then followed by several up pitched chirps in succession. Some times it does 7. Or 8. Sometimes it will do 12. It is never consistent. Well it is consistently annoying, but the number if chirps is in no decipherable pattern.
Then there is the species that I do know- the ever so melodic crow. They have been on my list of things I love to hate for quite some time now. They are the birds that prompted me to say yes to my sons when they asked for b.b. guns. "Really boys, I will pitch in the extra $30.00 so you can get the higher powered one. Really, it is my pleasure!" They looked at me with a puzzled and quizzical look when I said I wanted to keep it in my bedroom... for safe keeping, of course!
Now I know that one of my besetting sins is sleeping in. If I could only look at these creatures as gifts from Heaven sent from the Lord himself to help me wake up earlier.

But almost every morning all I manage to do is get out of bed , shut the windows in our room as well as the door, turn on the fan for white noise... and then try to go back to sleep. The other morning while trying to pull the covers over my ears to assist in the noise cancellation my thumb nail gouged my chin! Now I have a scab to
My idea of being up early is to never go to bed. The night owl that I am would actually succeed with this technique for a while. But alas, I would end up taking naps, and that would-I am quite sure- become another post entirely!
