I'm familiar with their sound. It isn't the same, but that doesn't mean
they don't make different sounds. I'll let you know if I figure it out.
Maybe I will just have a houseguest for awhile . . .I'm growing
accustomed to its sound. I just wanted whatever it is out for obvious
reasons and that it not starve before it can be caught and set free. If
it's a bat, it seems it's in more than it is out. I don't know what
happens while I'm sleeping.
Seems odd the cat doesn't show more curiosity about it. She's a good
mouser and caught a chipmunk by the tail when one got in my computer
room. I made her drop it, it hid in a corner, I isolated it by closing
the door and getting the cat out and left some peanuts and water out.
In the morning there were peanut shells all over my keyboard. I opened
the screen a couple inches and left some peanuts on the windowsill and
the next day the peanuts hadn't been eaten and it was gone. I don't
think the cat got it.
The woodpecker eventually flew into the top of the closet and climbed
into a small computer peripheral box. I clamped the lid down tight when
I found it and took it outside and set it free.
This one has me stymied. For now. It's just chirping away as I write,
every few seconds.
Hmmm. I will check that out. I have one sitting in the dr on the
buffet and one in the sunroom. Didn't bother to get on a ladder and
install them the proper way. That might be it. Thanks! It's chirping
now. I just took two batteries out. There are more in boxes in the
spare room, don't know where exactly I put them.
I'll try to get back to you on this.
Have you checked the battery in the smoke alarm?? I know that sounds stupid,
but I once tracked a "cricket" for two weeks, only to discover that he was
really the smoke alarm chirping to let me know the battery was dead.
I think you nailed it. And you didn't know I had smoke detectors
(suppose most people do, net people at least).
It makes me laugh at myself, telling it to come out so I could catch it
and let it go free. Ha ha.
That's three problems solved within the last two days, two with the help
of netizens and one by my little old self. I get so much good help on
the net, it's amazing.
I must tell you it's a huge relief, didn't know how long I was going to
have to put up with it or what it would take to solve that one. Wonder
if I had gotten an animal trapper if he would have figured it out.
