Air conditioner is scaring away my birds

When I was looking for a house to rent, I had a few things that were really important to me.

I needed to have great roommates, we needed to find a place with a massive backyard so I could have a dog, and I wanted to be able to split the house somewhat down the middle.

In my opinion, it always works best for roommates to be able to delineate distinct areas of the house for their use and general passage. Luckily, this worked out perfectly. My roommates have the front of the house and I have the back of the house. I even have my own separate door. I absolutely love being able to look out into the backyard, and there are tall bushes outside of my windows that provide visual interest and privacy. What I like most about the bushes, however, is there a parent appeal for local birds. Every morning, I have an assortment of songbirds that hang in the window. Well, I used to. Then, air conditioning season started. Since we’ve been running the indoor air cooling system, I’ve noticed a steep decline in the number of birds who visit my window. In my opinion, it’s because the air conditioning condenser is located too close to the bushes. The loud piece of air handling equipment stirs up a lot of dirt and noise pollution every time the AC turns on. The massive cooling system component is located right next to my bushes, and I’ve seen the birds fluttering away in a panic as cool air comes flowing out of my air vents indoors. As the summer heat rolls into our region, there’s not much we can do about the need for air conditioning. I just hope that my birds get used to the sound.
