Default Real Life Angry Birds...

So I think I know how the creator of Angry Birds got his idea. We have been having Cardinals attack our windows in the mornings for a few weeks now. Whats the deal? I am guessing its mating season or something and they are very territorial, but they start around 7AM and don't quit until around 11AM or so. There are times where they fly back and forth between our window and the neighbors window. Anyone else experience this? Is this normal behavior for Cardinals? We have been living here for 3 years and this is the first time this has happened.

If you ever see a blue jay morph into 3 blue jays and attack your house, you may want to called animal control....and a priest.

It's those angry hippos that want to run into your house you have to worry about..... especially if they have tatoos and a baby in their arms...

We had finches doing that not to long ago, if it's breeding technique it didn't work.

I have a customer that has a problem with that.. I've replaced two broken window for them already.. finches, jays, and jays chasing finches..

She has a reflective coating to reduce sun through her windows.. I built her a big bird 'corral' about 30' in front of those windows, because she feeds them and then likes to sit indoors with her binoculars and camera and watch them through the windows...

Quite a variety of birds in her yard, and deer, and squirrels, and raccoon, and quail, and you name it.... They all know where to come for free dinner...

The dang deer and the sqirrels actually sit out there and wait for her to come feed them.... LOL

Every year there's more.. Currently a couple bucks, a half dozen does, and several fawn... and the fattest squirrels I've ever seen...

We're currently trying to work out solutions to keep them from flying into the windows without diminishing her views... (the birds..not the squirrels or deer )

She's president of the local audobon society or some such...

Probably angle of the sun/window they see a reflection of a bird they don't know (themselves). Bird sight is really sharp, and they know each other well. So the reflection of the unknown bird, the territory "invasion", .... attack! Chase it away...

will probably die down as the angle of the sun changes.

I've seen years when I have tons of birds, and years more sparse. So the fact you haven't seen it before doesn't really mean anything.

Damn... Thought this was a thread about firing real birds out of slingshots. Please rename the misleading thread title.
