    I have 7 geese and two ducks that free range 24/7. Lately they have been camping out right outside my window along with a rooster and my goat. They just started doing this and they are extremely noisy. They have a barn to go to, and various other pens on the property but they choose to hang out in the open in my yard. We do have three Great Pyrenees that keep them safe but still, It's winter and they have other shelter all over the place. I'm going to pen them up I'm losing too much sleep!

    Those ducks and geese are so noisy all night long, I swear they don't sleep they nap on and off day and night.

    Do you have any lights on or noise that could be attracting them?

    My ducks have Duck Joke Fests all night long outside. They also swim in their stock tank at night. There are Duck Drumming Circles too, when they all get together and bill the plastic kiddie pools.

    But it ISN'T underneath my bedroom window.
