[ <--click this picture for MORE] A couple of weeks ago, I had this girl bombing my patio window. I'd heard of birds flying into windows and killing themselves before but this one's doing it all wrong since it's taken so many "tries". She does this all day long. She started with my window but now she's picking on three of my neighbors too. Lots of beak marks on the glass and I'm scrubbing pooh off of patio daily. Thanks to Melisa, I was offered both an explanation and possible solutions. The balloons were the most successful; I’d gotten a pair of used mylar birthday balloons from the skating rink and tied ’em off on the porch rail. My only beef with the article was the line which read; “robins are not stupid”.
