    I think just live and let live ba....try getting used to their loud calls? If all else fails just use a pair of earplugs.

    At least their calls not as loud and irritating as that made by the Asian koel....I am often woken up by the loud calls around 5am as there are a pair of these birds living near the foot of my block. Asian Koel call: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZALQV7SDCc

    That should be the call made by the Asian koel...see link above.
    Last time heard of this sound also.. Is that also a sound of death? They say when one is about to die, they emit some strange smells and attract birds and so on..

    My place noise is like chirp-chirp-chirp, ... , chirp-chirp-chirp, ... , chirp-chirp-chirp, and like that.. 3 chirps in a sequence, then short stop.. I really want to use spotlight to try to chase it liao..

    Of course NOT. These birds are now in urban because their natural habitat is destroyed. The good news is they will adapt but will carbon entities like human allows there co-existence.

    If you want to know a person just died in a particular block of an estate (not refering to those near parks), you will hear one cicada (only one) calls very loudly in that blocks.

    Heard the chinese proverb Kill the chicken to scare the monkeys? Maybe you could go chop a chicken loudly in front of the bird to scare it off.

    i reckon night birds are scared of lights.. so I get those focus lights to flash thru the woods..
    i guess that would be enough to startle their eyes and force them fly away..
