Quentin Tarantino is so fed up with what he says are the "blood-curdling screams" of exotic birds housed in an outdoor aviary on his neighbor's Los Angeles property, robbing him of his ability "to find peace in his home," that he is taking the neighbor to court.

In a lawsuit the creator of Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill filed March 10 against Alan Ball, the screenwriter and producer behind HBO's Six Feet Under and the film American Beauty, Tarantino says that himself and others in his home "are subjected to the macaws' obnoxious pteradactyl-like screams, which are not only startling, but have also seriously disrupted Mr. Tarantino's ability to work as a writer in his home."
