Strange Noise from the Inside

Hello all!

I'm a first time poster here, having purchased an old 1989 190E 2.6 a few weeks ago. It was, and still is, in fantastic condition, incurring only 76,000 miles to boot.

I need your help.

I noticed two days ago a very odd, chirping, almost twilling and tweeting sound coming from underneath what sounded like the emergency brake or at least the console surrounding the emergency brake.

To tell the truth, it sounded, as my five year old daughter affirmed, as though a bird took up residence under the car. The chirping varied in sound, pitch, rhythm, and pace for about fifteen minutes before stopping for the remainder of my drive (and for the remainder of the day).

If one can imagine the sound of a sparrow in the morning, singing on your window sill with just enough volume to drive someone crazy, then one will have a good idea what I am trying to describe.

I then started hearing a tapping sound coming from the floorboard of the right front passenger side. One can, as crazy as it may sound, imagine a chicken pecking for food--tap, tap, pause, tap-tap-tap, pause for fifteen seconds, tap, pause, tap-tap-tap-tap.

This tapping was only audible while stationary.

When I returned to the car in the afternoon, driving home from work, none of these sounds occurred.

It seems to be an early morning phenomenon.

Any insight?

All of these sounds stopped as soon as I turned off the ignition.
