    Not enough information. How far are you willing to go for sleeping well? Do you have your own house or do you live in a multiple storey building? If you have your own house, there might be some things you could do. Are the trees really close to the house? Sleeping well or aesthetics? Maybe cut down the trees?

    Do you have a cat? If not, maybe you should consider having one or many.

    If you live in a multiple storey building surrounded by trees, then cutting down the trees might cause some trouble, but it's doable. However, it's illegal and very, very bad. It's best that you don't do that.

    I'm actually very familiar with you problem, run. My solution was to move away. But I was going to move away anyway.

    However, I think earplugs are the best solution here, if you actually care about the trees, prefer the birds to live and would like to continue living where you live. Good luck finding a solution

    I can't cut down the trees or anything.

    Wouldn't earplugs shove into your ear when you sleep on them?

    What do you mean by shoving? That's where you're supposed to put them. In. To. The ears

    It takes some getting used to at first. But hey, no pain, no gain. You do want to sleep, don't you? And don't give up the first time you feel uncomfortable wearing them. At least give it a try for a week or two.

    i'm saying, if you sleep on your side, it might dig in. And get stuck or cause damage or something.

    If you use them correctly, there shouldn't be any problems. Learn how to use them and find earplugs that suit you. Get as much information as possible. Maybe you should consult your doctor on possible risks of wearing ear plugs.

    Well, there are also external ear protectors, they're supposedly just as effective as ear plugs. Google sleep masks or something like that. There are such varieties that cover the ears as well.


    Also, have you considered any noise reducing shades, blinders, curtains and such?

    Use the sort of ear plugs that are foamy and cheap, as they are made to stick into the crook of your ear canal, so there isn't any little points or anything to have shoved in.

    Also, I agree with the cat suggestion, and a good BB gun could fix the problem real fast. I mean, you're not sleeping anyways, right? A night of staking out could mean months worth of good sleep.

    And white noise was an excellent suggestion as well. A box fan, or a TV or something. But.. I suppose if noise didn't bother you, than the birds wouldn't bother you in the first place. So. Ear plugs sound like your best option.

    Last night I noticed the same thing. I actually opened my window so I could hear it better though, it is kind of soothing.

    They stopped. Thank God.

    THanks for the tipz.

    Btw, if I got ear plugs (I have), and then got noise headphones, would that double the noise reduction?

    We got ourselves a cat 4 years ago. I haven't seen many birds around since we have Patsy.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."
