I really want to Kill a Mockingbird

Not in a Harper Lee way, in a fucking dead way. There is one that sits outside my bedroom all night and screams like a 90′s standard car alarm.(whooooop, ezh ezh ehz, weee wooo wee wooo) It doesn’t even wait till sunrise, it just toots its horn all goddamn night. I’m a vegetarian, but I am ready to burn this bird on a steak. There is a fake owl out there, it just screams in it’s face, there is also a 18 inch Godzilla on the roof, it just takes dumps on its head. Does anyone have any suggestions, I haven’t slept this week.

    holy crap that was scary.

    I don’t want to kill it now, I just want it to go away.

    That’s easy!! Download or find the sound effect of a big owl or hawk, some type of big ass bird that sounds scary and would eat a Mockingbird. (Barn Owl or Screech Hawk??) Then put a speaker up to ur window the next time you hear the Mockingbird chirping away, and blast that shit. Trust me it works.

    The same scenario happened to me when I was 12 or so. My dad’s National Geographic bird call record sure came in handy. :D

    You also could make a scare crow out of the spanks girl picture. Blow it up and hang it in your tree… it would scare me away

    i’ve seen that bird outside Simon’s balcony a couple mornings, she’s got boy-birds lined up down the telephone line … bird-banging em on top of the telephone pole.

    the 24/7 chirping is her nympho-whore call … i think pepper spray works for whores?

    haha, that bitch was mocking me when I was telling her to “shutup”! at 1am, it was mocking the same tone of shut-up. she then stated to follow my whistle tone, it was a special moment, we were friends for a moment until she wouldn’t stop, so I threw a small vat of hummus at her. never heard the whore again.

    Dear Madex,
    I found this website obviously by typing I really want to kill a mockingbird.
    I have not one but two of these evil birds taunting me. They arrived today at 10 am.
    Have you figured a way to get rid of these bastards? Please let me know.
    Cheers!

    Dear Kim, No, I haven’t gotten rid of them.
    I tried to put owl sounds on an iPod and loop them on a stereo in the backyard.
    It didn’t work, nothing works. If you yell at it, it will yell back.
    I feel however you are lucky, cause 10am is an ok time for a bird to scream.
    1am however is not the right time. I have had many sleepless nights, and still continue to.
    I got a loud fan, that sorta drowns out the bird screams.

    Good Luck Kim,

    I hate my mockingbird it started at one a.m and went on for 3 hours. I will figure out a way to kill him. Yes I know it is not legal, whoever past that law did not have a mockingbird out their door. My across the stree neighbor feeds birds… does anyone think she started this mess…

    Hey guys, just happened upon this sight while searching for ways of getting rid of a mocking bird. Sorry you have the problem but I’m also glad to know it’s not just me. Had this problem in the past in a different house and it lasted for a year and a half. The bird was driving me insane. I bought a pellet gun and hunted it for a month. I killed it . The neighbors cheered and I felt horrible for a couple of days but I slept like log.

    I now have the problem once again but I really don’t want to deal with the gilt of killing it so I’m going to go with a high powered water nozzle . I know they hate to be wet especially at night. I think it will work. Try a soap and water mixture that wont mess with nature but might jack it’s feathers up a bit. Happy hunting.

  18. madex said,
    on July 5th, 2008 at 11:57 am

    Good Idea. I also got a loud fan that makes the bird harder to hear at night.

  19. on July 5th, 2008 at 1:09 pm

    Yeah good idea… If some animal is bothering you shoot it with a pellet gun until its dead? and your neighbors cheered? For fuck sake, when can I start hunting people I don’t like? PS I still have skunks and I’m NOT about to kill them.

  20. SC said,
    on July 6th, 2008 at 1:33 pm

    Yeah……. A human and an insane bird is exactly the same. Are you kidding me? You don’t kill people dumb ass. But you’re probably one of those A-holes that put animals in front of people. Enjoy your skunk problem . I wont be as big of an ass as you though. Here you go ,here is how to solve your skunk problem. Find some friends with a jack russle terrier, have them pea all over your back yard and the skunk should leave.

  21. on July 6th, 2008 at 4:43 pm

    SC, don’t be a total douche. First of all the Mocking Bird in not insane. It’s squawking b/c that is what it does… its a bird, it doesn’t know any better. Second, yes I would put any of my pets before a stranger. My pets are family. Third, urine won’t repel a skunk. The only thing that repel a skunk is the sent of it’s natural enemy… the fox.

    So, I guess I’m one of those “A-holes”… (sigh)

    We actually have an insane mocking bird here at our house in Florida. It flies into our windows for hours on end. I put a scarecrow out by our bedroom window a few days ago, the kind you get for fall yard decoration and have not heard it again at that window. The crazy thing is that it has been banging its head into various windows on our house, cars and neighbor’s houses for MONTHS and is still alive and kicking. Not sure what we’re going to try if it starts again, it’s our state bird and it’s obviously dain bramaged. Poor thing.

    I’m cursed with a mocking bird too! I tried hosing it out of the tree, didn’t work, just bought a slingshot, took a handful of pellets and shot at it for about 15 minutes, it sits in a large tree outside my window, so far it’s been quiet, I hope I killed it, will know soon.

    Wow. I am amazed how many people seem to have this problem. Now I am encouraged more then ever to find a solution. I live in a small city in LA. My neighborhood has become over run by mockingbirds. I wish I only had one or two like the rest of you. That would be a blessing. They line up on the telephone wires before dawn. Once the sun comes up and it gets warm they head for a shady tree. They and their bird crap are everywhere. I don’t have the heart to kill them, but I have often fantasized about an electrical current coming through the wires and zapping the crap out of them once and for all.

    Thanks for letting me share. I feel much better.

    The two posters before the fertilizer guy. dont think those are mockingbirds especially the ones that line up. The reason they are noisy is because they are looking for a mate. So buy him a hooker bird? Other than that I would play Blue jay noises since they hate them but wont fight em. Hawks and Eagles wont work because they will fight them. Or the glue trap minus the head cutting. Just go drop his ass off in a different neighborhood. Could also take heart that since the bird is now a year older he can find a mate easier.

    You guys, play a blue jay sound. It’s 2:30 in the morning and I have been desperately battling an %%%%% mocking bird for a week now (I’m at zombie status from lack of sleep). I tried hosing the bird, didn’t work. I tried throwing a Frisbee at the tree to scare the bird away, didn’t work. I tried throwing pebbles. I tired owl sounds. I tried hawk sounds. Nothing worked. After reading the above post I played a blue jay audio clip and the stupid bird immediately shut up!!!!!!

    The comment for a person with “Get over it.” comment: “Get over it” is not helpful. If anything it is annoying and will only make people more pissed at these birds and people who like them.

    I have a mocking bird outside of my window that has been keeping me up for a week.

    I am quite sure that this particular bird was not here when I was born so according to your logic, I have more rights. My husband just threw a shoe at the tree and it helped. Since you did not offer any “humane” solution, I am planning to hose the tree down with water if I hear the bird again. If this still does not work, I will find somebody to kill the creature. Not something I want to do…

    I have had it! These **** birds are driving me insane. Every year it seems like they get worse. Like so many of you I have had countless nights of NO SLEEP. I have a Loud Fan and wear cotton in my ears…barely drowns them out. They never stop, 24 hours a day they scream. It’s relentless (on a side note, this might be an idea for a humane method of human torture). I’ve heard that reflective objects such as cds and tin pie pans “sometimes” work until they become accustomed to them. Besides, at my age I’m not very good at climbing trees anymore or scaling my roof to put these items in place. And, who is going to go out at 3:00 am and blast them with water? In my “brilliance” I pounded my fist on my bathroom window and busted it at 3:30 this am. It was an old single pane window! Now, I am determined to do whatever it takes to rid my self of these MOST OBNOXIOUS creatures. And, for heaven’s sake how long does it take to find a mate? I live in So. California and I have had this problem for well over 6 weeks now. It’s maddening! So, where can I find these BLUE JAY sounds? I’ll try anything at this point.

    Well,

    I tried the bluejay sounds and they… didn’t work. When the little b***tard woke me up yet again at 5 am, I had bluejay squawks preloaded and ready to go on my computer. I threw in some earplugs and blared the terrible sounds at top volume for a few minutes. Turned it off and the horrible mocking bird was still whistling its car alarm chirp uninterrupted. I’ve done this a few mornings in a row now, and the neighbors have started crossing the street when they see me coming.

    I’ve got one too. 1:30am and he’s just beginning his 3 hours of relentless calling. I’m half tempted to toss my cat into the tree he’s calling from. He’d gladly rip the bird to shreds. Tried the bluejay calls to no avail. If anything, he interacts and tries mocking them. Praying the great horned owl returns and scoops his annoying ass up.

    Obviously Harper Lee never had one of these freakin birds living outside her window yammering on and on all night long. I’ve got one of these stupid birds living in my neighbor’s tree in a small metropolitan neighborhood. It was here all last summer, shrieking and clacking and yapping all night long, usually starting at about 11pm. Sometimes it would go for hours and hours, or just a little while, but each night without fail. I’d love to shoot it, chop down it’s tree, or beat it to death with a shovel. You are welcome to trade beds with me for 1 week before judging me, though going by previous posts, it looks as though I am not alone on this. I was so relieved when this thing split last summer, and am not even sure if it is the same bird this time, but, had I known this thing was going to come back, I seriously would have not renewed my lease and moved lol.

    I have been battling mockingbirds at my house for months. It is slowly making me insane. The only permanent solution is to kill them. Hosing doesn’t work and whoever said “relocate” them, seriously? That’s like saying I don’t want nuclear waste in my backyard, but it’s okay in someone else’s. Why would you inflict your problem on someone else? I doubt all of you idiots condemning people who want to kill a bird are vegetarians, which I guess would make you raging hypocrites instead. These little birds are awful. I used to hose him out of my tree, now he’s moved to a neighbor’s tree where I can’t get him, but can still hear him loud and clear. He used to scream from about 11pm to 10am, and now he pretty much screams 24/7. It’s enough to make me want to sell my house. My only option appears to be continuing to shoot at him with my air rifle until I hit him.

    A calming and brief wave of sanity just washed over me knowing that I have not blown this situation out of proportion in my head. Clearly these little bags of fuck sauce have the propensity to cause sever emotional distress to all who are thrown into this unfortunate disposition. I hate PETA, eat veal, where baby seal skin clothing, and when I played Oregon Trial everyone in my train died of glutton because all did was hunt.

    But I digress. I have spent many sleepless moons planning my attack, and tonight I hope to realize the fruit of my efforts. Here is the plan:

    Step 1) I coated the entire tree in turpentine early this morning.
    Step 2) I have a high powered hose in “ready” position.
    Step 3) I have a pool cleaning net also in “ready” position
    Step 4) I have set up 3 strobe lights, all from various angles, which will all be activated simultaneously.
    Step 5) Wait patiently allowing the blood lust to subtly grow
    Step 6) Soon as that talentless faggot starts his escapades I spring the strobe lights which should render him temporarily paralyzed because he will think he is at a Bird rave with hot bird pussy.
    Step 7) blast him with the hose until he falls from the tree and to the ground like an epileptic kid playing a japanese video game
    Step 8) use the pool net to capture him. Chloroform him and place a bag on his head so he doesn’t know where I am taking him and burn his tree to the ground to destroy any residue evidence.
    Step 9) Take him to a secret location where I plan on water boarding him until he divulges all secrets of the mocking bird community. (I plan on sharing these secrets upon retrieval)
    Step 10) Call him names to degrade him and remind him how he is shaming his ancestors.
    Step 11) Convince him to die honorably by committing a samurai style suicide
    Step 12) Recklessly discard his body in the public square to serve as a warning to all future mocking birds,

    I will post later with my results.

    well I had one keeping me awake for weeks now, everynight 1 am to 3 am or 4 am he would wake my daughters up it was a mess. went to the store bought a pellet gun, iwas upstairs at about 8 or so heard him, went down and 1st shot I took( Im a good shot) hit him in the head and he fell in my driveway. I slept like a baby last night. Now do I have guilt ? no not one ounce in fact I did a dead bird dance I was so happy. This thing has ruined me for work and woken my entire household up for weeks. Humans are the dominant species for a reason, this time the reason was the invention of a pellet gun.

    So if you are tired like me , dont wrestle with it, buy the pellet gun and shoot the sucker, hope this helps someone out there.

    Oh and I left his corpse wings spread out in my yard , I hope his freinds see it and they get the message.

    It is screaming right now. It is screaming around the clock. I am in a crowded section of LA, and I know it is driving everyone crazy. If it’s true that we just need to find it a mate, are there dating websites for mockingbirds? I will pay the monthly fee.

    Seven years ago this month, we had another mockingbird and I went out one night at 2:00 am with a rock to try to kill it. The next day, Gregory Peck died. God’s truth. I figured baby Jesus was trying to tell me something.

    Last night I went out and shook the tree. It flew off, but just went to a neighbors tree and laughed at me….. all night long.

    Well here we go. Last spring a mockingbird went every day almost 24 hours a day. I lost a lot of sleep. He was just out of pellet gun range and I could not shoot in his direction due to risk of monetary damage. I am an outstanding marksman. I do not miss when something is in range.

    The bird stopped in September so I just let it go. Well he started again this spring. Same bird same tree. Same stupid noises and flying between the same three trees. He finally came in to my yard and I had the pellet gun at the ready. I dropped him like a bad habit and felt absolutely no remorse. It was quiet again.

    Three days later another one started going but only in the day time. I said to myself at least it is only in the day time. Well this one started to make noise at night also. Same scenario another bird down. To make a long story short I have about 12 confirmed kills in the last few months and they just keep coming.

    At what point will they become extinct in my neighborhood?

    Wow, I can’t believe that there hasn’t been a post since last July.

    I have suffered similar woes as many of you. Here’s my specific story. I have been in my home on the Orange County / LA County for 40 years. Until two years ago I have never had NIGHT mocking birds. Well, a gang of these bastards rolled into my neighborhood. The leader gets chirping at 11:00pm starting around Ash Wednesday. At first it’s only an hour, but by Easter he’s squawking till dawn. His hoodlum friends spread out all over the tract – I’d say about 1/8th mile apart. I don’t need to tell you what a cacophony that becomes. This is my third year of it, and it’s like clockwork…

    Last year I talked to my bird watching friend – this is a guy who actually pays money to go to exotic places and look for birds to check off in his “bird book” (heh, and I thought that I was a loser….) Anyway, he said to try all the stuff you’ve already heard and gives me total B.S. assurances like “he’s just trying to attract a mate / he’ll quiet down when he finds a mate.” Well, this must be one UGLY bird, cuz no chickees nested with him. He said try Blue Jay music. Try hosing them out. I did everything. All to no avail. Short of pellets (which I’ll get to in a minute) the only thing I haven’t tried is getting a dozen mean-ass cats from the shelter. Unleash some ferrel-feline-furor…yeah baby. Maybe that’s why there weren’t any of these winged wankers for 37 years…the neighbors always had cats…now they don’t.

    Here’s the issue I have with the pellet route. My guys only scream at night. They roost in bottle brush trees near the curb. Can’t see them to shoot them! Even during the day (when my flock is quiet) the trees are too thick to spot them unless I get right under them at the curb – on city property…with a gun… (Can’t shoot from there because although 99% of the neighbors would cheer the killing, one jerk off would rat me out and that’s a felony cruelty charge – CA state protected birds…) I looked into night vision scopes to shoot them from my property (Very expensive AND illegal in California). I looked into heat sensing scopes (Legal, but thousands of dollars)

    Oh, I almost forgot…My bird watching friend said that when the bird flu came through a few years ago it wiped out 30-40% of the Crows in Orange County and the Crows helped keep the Mocking bird population down by eating some of their eggs and babies. So, as much as I hate Crows, I have found a new respect for them. I want to find a bird feeder that only attracts Crows now…

    So here it is, 12:27am, windows closed and it’s like I’ve got a car alarm strapped to my head. Thanks for listening, my M.A. (mockingbirds anonymous) friends.

    It took me 2 weeks of sleepless nights. But finally PEACE!!!

    First I tried to shoot it or scare it off with my pellet gun that didn’t shoot well; but it scared it off to my neighbors for a short time. Then it came back and screamed the whole night for several nights. It won’t go away. 2:00am screaming throughout the night and day. Sounds like a car alarm. VERY LOUD…. exactly (WHOOOOOP, EZH EZH EZH, WEEE WOOO WEEE WOOO, etc.)

    My suggestion… Don’t scare it off. It recognizes you and then you have to go into sniper mode to kill this bastard which will be a lot harder. I’m talking from experience.

    Finally borrow my coworkers BB rifle that he had since he was a kid and that’s a long time ago. He’s about to retire.

    Took me a week. I had to hide because the bird recognizes me and will fly away when it sees me. It landed on the cable line outside my bedroom. It looked to see if I was sitting outside on my chair where I normally sat for hours and waited for a chance to blast it; however this time I was inside, chair outside was empty, windows slightly opened… it made it’s chirp. It didn’t see anyone sitting in the chair. It did a 180 and faced the other side toward neighbors house. I sighted the mockingbird on my scope, prayed that it will finally hit this freaking bird (remember this over 30+ yr old BB rifle). Pulled the trigger. BLAM!!!

    SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Finally got it with the BB rifle with a scope inside my bedroom with the windows opened slightly enough to have a line of sight and to extend the BB Rifle barrel outside. After I fired the BB, a second later, I noticed the mockingbird collapse and twirl down like one of those fighter planes going down, on my neighbors side of the brick wall unfortunately.

    Peace at last, peace at last… Thank god almighty, I got peace at last.

    Mr. KL,
    You should be very proud to be named the “SNIPER”; one-shot, one-killed. I was too the Sniper in my younger age. I used to hit lizards with one shot in the head from 10 feet away. This is as far as I would go for killing and would not hesitate if someone come to my home uninvited. :cool:

    Well, it’s 3am and I think this mockingbird hates me as much as I hate him. It’s been there every night for the past couple of months, and I can never see where he is in the tree… I usually throw a rock up there to spook him, and he will shut up for about 5-10 minutes. He’s come to recognize me, and pipes down when I rush the tree… now, he just goes back to his sadistic game as soon as I go back in the house. The neighborhood cats won’t get involved, lazy bastards. I am thinking about looking for some kind of sound-making gadget with a remote control, or maybe I’ll throw a walkie talkie up there. If it doesn’t shut him up, at least I can tell him how much I hate him and his kind. I wish some creature would eat that sob already!! I am at my wit’s end. Forget mosquitos, these birds are the most annoying things I have ever encountered…

    I have at least 10 in my yard. The bullies even will not let the hummingbirds to their feeder. I just planted new trees and they bounce on them like a trampoline. Just know that they are going to kill them. Why do some states think these birds are so precious. I think they are bullies and their population needs to be decreased.

    First, see my post above from last year.

    Update: It’s Feb. 24, 2012, 11:44 PST. (Two days after Ash Wednesday.) The bastards are back. The week of Ash Wednesday changes every year. How do they know?? Is this some test of my Catholicism during Lent?

    I am going to convert to another religion. Do ninja’s have a religion? Cuz saying “serenity now” ain’t working for me.

    More to come, it’s still early in the season and they aren’t at full pitch yet.

    At first I didn’t know what kind of bird was keeping me up all night. And of course it has to be at the side of the house where all of our bedrooms are. When it wake me up in the middle of the night or very early in the morning I get up and go to my living room and its quite there. It started a couple of months ago. It is driving us all crazy. The one post I read earlier said that their bird would crash into their window. We had that happen twice now. We never had that happen before our new visitor. So I guess these mockingbirds are not only annoying but stupid too. We have a huge flock of parrots that live and breed in the San Gabriel area in CA. And as loud and crazy they can be at least its only during the day and they fly from city to city not staying in one area for long. They travel in bunches of at least 75 to 100 and they don’t bother. But this one mocking bird. I don’t know how much longer we can wait for it to either find a mate or find its maker.

    TurningintoJimbo, I know what you are saying. It probably started for us around that time. Do you think that it could be some kind of a test. LOL Or is this God’s way of saying I need to be a better Catholic. I did miss receiving ashes this year.

    For all of you living in SoCal, I just had my mockingbird problem solved for me. I haven’t had a mockingbird problem since last fall. The only problem is that now I have an even more raucous flock of pests, albeit just in my waking hours. A HUGE number of parrots descended on my neighborhood last year and seem to have chased away all the nighttime singing mockingbirds. I still hear 1 or 2 during the day, but that’s ok. The problem I have now is that these parrots come in 20-50 at a time and make so much noise (especially late afternoon) that even with doors and windows closed you can barely have a conversation in the house without yelling. I guess I’ll need to ask how to get rid of THEM now, but I was thinking that maybe their sound might be effective in chasing away your mockingbirds. Just hope it doesn’t attract a flock of real parrots to your house! Good luck!

    :twisted:

    Awhile back, 9 years or so, I was really sick for 3 weeks and had this fucking mockingbird squawking all day and night. At the time I didn’t know what kind of bird it was, but the combination of being *really* sick and hearing this fucking demon bird all day and night for weeks caused me to have a keen recognition for them. Now, in a new neighborhood, there’s one very close and extremely loud, squawking like a car alarm during the night. It just arrived in the last few weeks (San Deigo). I wish I could take a pellet gun to the little bastard, but they usually squawk from TV antennas or really high spots that make it tough in an area like this where the buildings are so close (no trees) and most of the neighbors probably sleep with guns under their pillows and would shoot back…

    There is absolutey no way to use a hose (stupid idea anyway), it’s a very urban area with apartments very close together and no trees!

    I was thinking about shining a laser pointer in their face and it might piss them off and make them leave. The only thing more annoying is the asshole with the harley at the end of the alley, thank God those damn birds can’t immitate that…

    I guess my only solution is death (of the bird). Unfortunately I live in the suck ass state of NJ and pellet guns are illegal. I have a sling shot that I am going to load up with buck shot pellets. Even that is illegal, but fuck it. My problem is that I have not seen it yet. I am going to put out a bird feeder in my yard to lure it out.

    This bird is going down.

    All you treehuggers that say to use earplugs and white noise need to get a ******* life and quit posting comments that are not going to work on a bird that can be heard 1/8 of mile away.Especially when its 15ft outside your window!! Bunch of ****heads that don’t have a clue. For 3 yes I have been listening to comments like that from a close family member and I have not killed it because of this family member(Father knows right HUH?) But it has became a quality of life issue. I am glad I seen others feel like they are going crazy because of these birds.I know I am!!! I hear this thing constantly!! All night long then during the day I here his brother and 20 cousins in the neighbors tree. I am going to get pellet gun today! That is the only thing that is going to work because nothing else has! Blasted with water beat the **** out if tree with broom hung CD discs in the tree have a “scareowl” .Any more brilliant suggestions that I missed from you Einsteins? Oh yeah the Blue Jay sounds(rolls eyes) like that’s going to work. Only thing that is going to work is to shoot this thing. Would the treehuggers like me to send them a pic of me doing a happy dance on top of this birds head with my size 12 boots?? I’m not only going to shoot this bird I am going to repay 3yrs of no sleep and frustration on this little piece of SH++ bird. UPDATE TO FOLLOW VERY SOON. :-):-):-) (and to people that actually have same problem the only solution is to kill it. Don’t learn the hard way like I did)
    15ft outside your window!!Dumb***!! I
