Remember when those strange-looking neighborhood signs--Echo Park, Hollywood--popped up on Sunset Blvd last year? Eastsider LA reports that neighbors' complaints about the signs' “bird repeller” sound----a high-pitched squeak intended to scare away birds--has gotten the attention of the Dept of Transportation, who say they will deal with the issue. Currently, the bird repellent "soundtrack plays on a loop even at night when there are no birds to scare away and can be heard inside with the windows shut, according to Ted Dorsey, who recently bought a home near the sign." You can also check out a recording of the sound on the blog. Caw! [Eastsider LA]
