This little devil has been hurling himself against my home office window for over a week. I’m guessing he is attacking his own reflected image in the glass. You’d think, after a few bone-jarring *pock*’s into the window he’d figure it out, but no such luck. Every day he keeps it up, smearing his bird juice all over my view.
I taped up an image of an attacking red-tailed hawk to try and dissuade him, but he just adjusted his trajectory and keeps up the attack. He really should be scared, there is a family of hawks a few trees over from here.
Although I admire his pluck and persistence, I’m pretty sure he’s going to kill himself with a few more days of window smacking, and even if he doesn’t, he’s messing up my window something awful. I might just have to put him down myself.
Mrs. Pupster went to The Wild Bird Store, and they recommended stick-on hawk silhouettes and reflective tape. We’ll see.
