Because Things Aren’t Crazy Enough

Standard

I have this little feller hopping up and down ourside our front window - either he's courting himself or defending his territory against that Other bird in the window. Crazy, I tell ya. Apparently, he's not hurting himself - he keeps coming back no matter what we do!

ETA - We put up a window decal - he was just at it all the time! From what I know about birds, and cardinals, I'm pretty sure he thinks he's defending his "territory" - but Damn! I don't want him to hurt himself. So far, he hasn't been back since the decal went up. We don't have a cat - and the dogs don't seem to phase him in the least. He's been very determined up until now!! He doesn't seem to be hurting himself - but I don't want to take that chance!

  1. I’ve never seen a bird do that! OH MY! Is he a really young one???
    Poor thing…he hasn’t learned that critical point – learn from our mistakes! lol
    (((hugs)))

  2. We have had that problem before. He sees his reflection in the window and things its competition. This is especially common during mating season, I believe. Our visitor was hurting himself and leaving little feathery smudge marks behind- ouch! We put up a sheet over the window and he stopped attacking.
