Does anyone know how to make birds go away? Every summer there are a bunch of birds that hang out right outside my window. Maybe they have a nest around here, or maybe they just visit a lot. Every night I leave my window open, to try to catch some of that marginally cooler night air, and every morning at dawn the birds start chirping like mad. I have to wake up, go to the window, raise the blinds, close the window, lower the blinds, and try to go back to sleep.
In fact, the birds are so loud, and so close, that even with the window closed I still can’t sleep. This morning I grabbed a pair of earplugs to try to sleep longer, which did in fact work.
I’m pessimistic about making the birds quieter*, so I’m also taking recommendations on earplugs. I bought a big box of orange conical ones from CVS a few years ago, and I’m not even close to using them up. They work great, but after a few hours they make my ears hurt so much that they wake me up. Less painful earplugs would be a big plus.
Birds gotta sing, and birds gotta fly.
I gotta love one man ’til I die.
Can’t help loving that man of mine.
