  • you might try one of those owls that they put around to scare off pigeons.

  • I would say the robin is very lucky to not have broken its' neck. We have had them fly into it once, but never multiple times.

    Counseling may be in order, but seriously I do not know a solution since you would almost have to cover the complete door to keep him from seeing his reflection.Would a temporary screen help until the mating season is over? (If that is the reason for the bizarre actions)

    Hopefully the abrupt stops have convinced him the opponent in invincible, but there is always the next one.

  • We tried counseling with the suicidal jay at our old house, but he was in a state of denial and passive aggressiveness. (Wait - this is a jay - there is no passive -just aggressive.) Finally, we handed him over to Darwin - anything that dumb shouldn't be allowed to pass on the chormosones.
