See me once, the winged creatures visiting.
See me twice, small children's eyes glistening.
See me four times, are you even listening?

Here are the previous riddles in this series (the solutions there have nothing to do with this one).

You are

LA

See me once, the winged creatures visiting.

LA stands for the city Los Angeles, "the angels".

See me twice, small children's eyes glistening.

LALA land is used to mean a fantasy world, often related to kids.

See my four times, are you even listening?

LALALALA while plugging your ears.

    $\begingroup$ @Cashbee It wouldn't happen to be a reference to rot13(gur Gryrghoovrf punenpgre), would it? $\endgroup$ – Punintended Sep 19 '18 at 21:11
  • $\begingroup$ According to Wikipedia at least, that name is spelled differently, so it could be a bit of a stretch, but I like that idea and that might be it anyway! $\endgroup$ – TheMadHaberdasher Sep 19 '18 at 21:20

Bit of a stretch but are you

UP?

Explanation:

See me once, the winged creatures visiting.

You often need to look up in order to see winged creatures like birds in the sky.

See me twice, small children's eyes glistening.

Small children will often say "up up" when they want to be picked up. Their eyes could be glistening with affection or because they are about to cry and want to be comforted.

See me four times, are you even listening?

Similar to the previous answer, if you ignore/don't listen to a kid saying "up up", they are likely to repeat it more fervently. "Up up! UP UP!"
