    Ricks Chicks Chillin' With My Peeps

    Last Year I had this crazy robin at my work that would show up on a branch outside my office at the same time every day and for about an hour, some times more, he would fly at the window and back to the branch. I thought this a little wired and no one at work knew why he did this. well a year later I am sitting at home, right now for that matter and I have a robin outside on my deck doing the very same thing. Dose any one know why?

    Most birds will do it, if they just happen to notice "the other" bird.

    We had a Cardinal that liked to look at himself in the side view mirror on my husband's car. That went on until the car was sold. [​IMG]

    DH was convinced the bird was saying "Pretty bird. I'm such a pretty bird"! [​IMG]

    If they can see their reflection they think it is the competition, a challenger for their territory, cardinals do it, so to titmice- if there is any way you can cover the window so he doesn't hurt himself it might help... have seen them do this in car mirrors too....[​IMG]
