The Chronicles of the Angry Geologist

Drilling a hole- for science!

He may be friends with the flicker who discovered my neighbor's metal chimney cap and has been advertising for a mate by banging on said chimney cap as soon as dawn approaches (roughly 5 am lately). You know, the boys go out, stay up 'til the wee hours of the morning carousing and looking for women? All I can say is at least it's my neighbor's chimney cap and not mine.

I feel for you with the mockingbird. Here's hoping some lady mockingbird finds him appealing soon.

I'd have thought that chicks would be a requirement. Oh, well, they'll come later.

Ooo, and I thought I had it bad with the 6am wakeup call every morning courtesy of the local birds.

A beebee in the butt might help. Or throw dog food at him.
I hope he finds love soon so you can get some sleep.

That's weird! Is there a lot of light around to confuse him? There was a streetlight right outside my bedroom window in college, and that was apparently the spot the robins chose to gather when they wanted to yell at each other in the middle of the night.

That's what I thought at first- the complex has a lot of security lights around the parking lot- but no, this is apparently just natural mating behavior.
