    I am just wanting some advice on how to approach this every morning at 5:30 my neighbours stupid aviary wakes my son I know this cause I have been setting my alarm to get up earlier to try and figure out when he starts stirring its not long after the birds start... We have shutters on the rooms and I can still hear them in my room and they r right outside DS window :/

    Could you put some white noise in your sons room to help mask the noise from the birds?

    How annoying! You cant really get birds to be quiet. Can you move your sons room?

    Could you ask your neighbors to move the birds so they aren't right outside your sons room?

    Not sure how they could make bird be quite though, but if you tell the neighbors at least they will be aware of it.
    When we had cockatiels they would chirp when the sun came up (chirping became earlier and earlier during summer when the sun rises earlier)
    We just to cover the cage with a sheet, use to keep them quit for a few more hours.
    Could you suggest this to them? Depending on how big the avery is I suppose...

    I'd consider moving your son into another room - is it an option?

    We r thinking of moving him.. We had planned to move him to his big boy room later so his nursery would be used for next bubs but I think it will have to happen earlier :/ I think I might have to talk to them. But this is why birds shouldn't be in cages lol just my opinion lol

    I don't think most people could truly appreciate how irritating pet birds can be until you are forced to live next door to really noisy ones! I can personally relate.

    My neighbours bird ownership has forced us to move out of our home, we just cannot stand it anymore

    unfortunately you cannot make birds be quiet and while moving the aviary may be an option, the placement of one has to take into account the weather all year round as well as proximity to potential dangers so it can get a bit tricky. Sorry, that wasn't very helpful, just the other perspective.
