Unfortunately, not from these guys....
One of the "perks" of living in town is having neighbors. Somewhere in my neighborhood is a bird that does a VERY LOUD wolf whistle. This is all it can do. The first time I heard it, I was bent over a very stubborn weed when this... whistle... came out of nowhere. I couldn't find the source, so went back to my weeding. Then the whistle again... and again... and again. I realized that it wasn't somebody having a rather rude joke at my expense, but someone's avian roomie.
Then, last week, my husband arrived home from some errand and I was standing there as he got out of the car. The bird went off and simultaneously, my husband and I said with gusto - "Thank YOU!" and burst out laughing. Apparently we'd had the same reaction to our neighborhood audio-lothario. If you can't shut him up, enjoy it.
