Birds Singing

Birds Singing is a spooky story about someone who is kept awake by the sound of birds chirping at night outside their window.

Birds Singing

Last Summer, it was very hot and every night, I had to sleep with the window open. Usually, I sleep soundly, but one night, I couldn’t get to sleep. I kept tossing and turning.

I could hear the sound of birds singing outside my window and it was keeping me awake. There was a large tree outside my window and that’s where the sound was coming from.

Eventually, I realized that there was no way I could fall asleep with that damned noise, so I leaned out the window and shouted, “Come on! Shut up! Shoo! Shoo! Go away!”

I listened for the flapping of wings, but there was nothing.

“Go on, shoo!” I shouted.

Then it dawned on me… It was after 2:00 AM. What birds could be singing at that time? They should all be asleep by now…

I peered into the darkness. I wish I hadn’t.

In the swaying branches of the tree, I could make out two dark silhouettes. They looked almost human. The figures were perched on a branch of the tree, directly across from my window.

I felt sick. The air was thick and I felt like I couldn’t breathe. Hastily, I shut the window and as I did, I could hear soft laughter coming from the tree.

Needless to say, I didn’t get any sleep that night. I went around the apartment, making sure every window was closed and every door was securely locked.

Now, I’m afraid to leave my windows open ever again…

    there’s a small blossom tree right outside my window, the window is about 4 meters wide so it’s pretty big, luckily i don’t open it that often.

    Now I’m kinda expecting to hear two deranged people chirping like birds outside of my bedroom window.

    There used to be a huge tree next to the window, but it git chopped down years ago. Creepy is the word I’d use to describe this story.

    But then again, they could just be insanely stupid teenagers pranking people.
