    I'm not an expert but here are a couple things that come to mind. Boredom, illness and winter and not in that order...Usually, the cold, long nights of winter cause birds to be "cooped" up and boredom sets in. Then a girl low on the "pecking" order or one with illness and she becomes a target. Just my $.02
