Birds are stupid

I’m away at an office at a secure and undisclosed location. I have a large window. All day, two stupid birds are repeatedly flying into said window. Every 8 seconds or so there are two thuds.

    Wait until the sun hits just right and the birds see their reflections and attack “the other”.

    That’s always good for some laughs.

    They must be wanting to get at the nut on the other side of said window 🙂 heh…

    I’ve always wondered if these really worked. Do you have time to try it? To humor a complete stranger, I mean?

    Similar situation went on for about a week at a former job. Bird had a nest in a low tree. Bird would attack the cafeteria window, slide down to the ground, fly back to his nest, lather rinse repeat. We assume he was attacking his reflection.

    You need to picture yourself in a Dean Koontz novel. Those carefully-timed thuds are actually a code. The birds are not stupid but hive-mind intelligent, and are trying to warn you of something!

    They’re like little Brady campaign members…

    I had a bird that returned for several years to nest in a tree in the yard; he’d spend a couple of weeks defending his territory by attacking the bird that he saw reflected in the bedroom window. He wasn’t entirely stupid, each year he attracted a partner and they raised a nestfull of young successfully each time.

    My mother-in-law (born in 1907, and therefore able to remember the other meaning of gay) referred to him as my gay bird.

    Paste a silhouet of a hawk or owl on the window somewhere, it should take care of the problem. They sell these in most gun shops and even Wallymart sporting goods might have them.
