How can I scare away the crow who squawks in the middle of the night in the tree outside my bedroom?

I have read this Ask
and good general suggestions, especially about the loud sharp noises.
The difference here is the crow is making a nuisance of itself at night, specifically between 1am and 2am. I have heard my neighbours slamming their windows shut and swearing at the same time as I am roused and swearing myself.
Any fresh insights or ideas from animal behaviorists, ornithologists or interested punters?
I'm in SE Queensland and it's spring here, if that's useful. I suspect fruit-bats are harassing the crow but not sure and don't really care WHY it's crowing in the wee hours, I just want it to stop. I glimpsed the culprit today at sundown going to roost as well. He/She is about 4 metres away from my balcony.
