The summer nights have forced me to sleep with the window open. It's not abnormal for me to do this every time the season rolls around. I like laying there in the early hours hearing the birds chirping away to start off the day. I find it kind of soothing.
I've probably experienced this sound since I was a child, but only started noticing it the last fifteen years or so. I'm on record saying that I am not a huge fan of the summer as I'm an autumn kind of guy, but I admit, I like the summer sounds at that time of the morning.
You knew there was a but coming, right?
This year, I've been waking up to the noisiest bird ever. It's squawking every single morning and is ruining the sounds of the other chirps.
The bird, or whatever it is, makes a screeching sound that reminds me of the opening to the theme from Hitchcock's Psycho.
It could be worse, I guess..
(As I was about to hit 'Publish' I heard the bird again!)
