When they notice light, diurnal birds automatically begin their morning chorus. Because urban areas are constantly illuminated, the birds may become confused about the time of day. They begin chirping because light pollution gives them the impression that it is dawn. [8] Diurnal birds that continue to chirp into the evening are song thrushes, dunnocks, and robins. Since robins are particularly sensitive to artificial and low light, they will continue to forage and chirp as long as there is light available after the sun sets.

Now that was disturbing. I have vaulted ceilings. I had the roofer come out a few months ago because I had noticed some water seeping in through the skylight. I was therefore concerned that there might have been a hole large enough for a bird to enter. Walking into the bathroom, I heard it even more clearly. How hard would it be to find the nest? What kind of cost would I be looking at? Chirp … chirp.

I’m not going to lie. My thoughts turned to the amount of money the man would need to find this bird and figure out how it got inside, in addition to the obvious. It seemed to be tweeting everywhere I went, so I started to imagine him having to punch holes in different places to find the source.

I got home late the other evening. All I really wanted to do was go to bed after finishing whatever I had to do in the kitchen since I was exhausted. I cut off the lights and began climbing the stairs. That’s when I heard it. The distinctive sound of a bird chirping. Chirp!, followed by a pause of roughly ten seconds, and then another chirp

I returned to my bedroom and took a seat on the mattress. I heard it again. Chirp … chirp … chirp. It seemed as though it was emanating from outside the south-facing windows. My neighbor next door recently let her niece to live in her attic apartment. If her niece had a bird, that would at least explain the high-pitched chirping sound coming from outside the window, and I was tempted to text her to ask. But looking at the hour, it was rather late. It would have to wait until morning. I heard the sound again. Chirp … chirp. On that side, between the external brick wall and the gutter, there used to be a nest. Perhaps there was a new one and I was just unaware of it.

Now I am proud of my hearing. And my first thought was, since most birds go to sleep at night, what kind of bird is chirping or tweeting at night? I went into my bedroom and I heard it again. That was really disturbing. I went out onto my deck because I thought the sound was coming from outside. I heard it again. I moved to the deck’s north and south ends, but I was unable to see anything. Plus it was cold. I therefore wasn’t going to try to address any nests that might be there in the dark. But as soon as I got back into my bedroom, it happened once more. Chirp … chirp … chirp.
