It's a little after 2 AM and I'm trying to work.  So I have the light on.  Apparently I have woken up the cardinal who lives in the bush outside my window.  He is now pecking on the glass and screaming "Jerk! Jerk! Jerk!" at me, like a neighbor banging on the ceiling with a broom.

What the fuck, dude.  I have the light on almost every night at this time.  There are dozens of other places in the yard where you could sleep in the dark.  Go find one.

EDIT 2:25 AM: My temporally confused neighbor is now attempting a full courting song.  I suspect his mate will shortly wing him in the nuts and direct him to find another bush.
