It's that time of year here in my neck of the woods. For some inexplicable reason, the birds swoop into my windows over and over again making horrendous thuds. Whether they think they are fighting another bird in the reflection, trying to mate with other bird (which is fairly odd if you think about it), or simply have gone Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs I don't really know. It lasts every year for about one week and I think it's tapering off now. If you have any bright ideas about why it happens or even how to dissuade the little birdbrains from bashing themselves into my windows, I'd be very grateful. I've tried putting up reflective tinfoil and stickers in the windows to no avail.
Maybe the birds come every year to try to jolt me out of my rut. "Try something new" they implore, "stop beating your head against the same wall day after day". I'll think about it and get back to you.
Would you believe it just began copiously sleeting here as I wrote that last paragraph? Guess I'm on to something. More later then.
