Michelle and Iain Cassie, of Newmachar, Aberdeenshire, said they have been tormented by loud construction work taking place just yards away from their house, which has been made twice as bad since their African Grey parrot Simba started imitating it.
The cheeky five-year-old bird is driving the couple up the wall with her copycat impressions of trucks reversing and drilling sounds.
Mrs Cassie, 46, said: "The parrot is actually making noises like the guys outside and is just copying anything.
"She makes grinding noises, truck noises and the beeping noise the cherrypicker makes when it's reversing.
"Putting up with the day-to-day sounds is hard enough without Simba copying them. We're just hoping when the works finish in January she will begin to stop the noises."
The builders have been constructing a community centre for Newmachar after seven years of locals raising more than £1.1 million for the project.
