He's back

Yes, this is our little psycho bird, a Western Tanager, back for another day of doing his best to get into our house. He's an early riser, and this morning it's our dining room windows he's trying to get through.

He hovers in front of them almost like a hummingbird, then either bumps into the window or flies away. I have turned the lights in the room on, and off, trying to determine if it's his own reflection he's after, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. The window can't be acting like much of a mirror because he sees me as soon as I move into the room and flies away, which made getting these photos an exercise in patience.

What do you want, little guy?

How strange. I read both posts regarding the little guy. The poor bird seems to be confused with something. Or he fell in love with your house and he wants to live with you two!

I've seen some stickers that people can put on the glass, in the shape of a hawk to scare birds and avoid them hitting the window.

It sounds a little mean, but it can save their lives. That may send your buddy somewhere else.
