Help Identifying Noisy Southern California Nocturnal Bird?

8 posts in this topic

Hi

I live in Glendale, California, and have nesting around our home several nocturnal birds that literally wake one up a night with the shrillness of their sounds. I hear their sounds from at least two close by locations, that appear to be coming from my close neighbor trees.

The neighbor hood has been built up since the 1920's, so we are not either in the country, nor are we in any sort of fringe area. Just standard suburbia.

Any idea what bird this would be, and how to encourage them to migrate somewhere else?

Thanks.

Welcome to Whatbird! thumb.gif

How would you describe the call?

You could have a mammal. Foxes often vocalize after dusk.

Northern Mockingbirds will sing at night, often pretty loudly. They keep me up when I go visit family in Pasadena.

Could be a variety of animals. I would say ear plugs would be an easier (and more legal) alternative than forcing what it is to move elsewhere. If it's Tree Frogs they could be clinging right outside your bedroom wall - that could get noisy!

Well if they are tree frogs, you'll have a hard time finding them,,they are camouflage and hide pretty well up about 20 feet up a tree.

It took me a long time to figure out that the tree frogs I was hearing in the trees in the woods weren't birds!!

Funny, Barn Owls nesting comes to mind for me. Lots of shrieking around there. Are they in Palm Trees by any chance?
