Mr. Robin Tries To Get INto My House.

Yesterday morning, about 6:30, I heard this knocking.
I thought it might be Mr. H. in the kitchen, but knew it wasn't.
I got out of bed and looked at the dormer window above the ledge opposite the top of my steps.
There was Mr. Robin coming up to the glass, landing on the outside sill, and tapping at my window. For 45 minutes.

This morning, I heard the same noise, except it was more remote.
I went downstairs at 7am, and there is Mr. Robin in the pine tree.

Then he ventured to the railing.

Then to the pot in front of my window.

Then, he hopped onto the next pot.

And back and forth.

In the meantime of jumping back and forth among pots, he flies INto the window.

BIRD PEOPLE, please tell me why this bird has done this ALL. DAY. LONG today.

Wow, that's a very nice pot. I really like it, in fact, I went to purchase one on Saturday, but, alas, they had sold out. It was a limited edition.
This morning, Glowria showed me where a mama bird had nested under her deck, so she can't pressure wash until the babies fly away. Oh, and did I tell you, I had 2 hummers visit me Sunday. Do you have hummingbirds where you live?

Why yes, I do have hummingbirds, xmaskatie. So many, in fact, I have to swat them out of the way when I walk through my luxurious gardens. They tend to hover about me and impede my progress through the lushness that is my garden.

Ahh yes, I know just what you mean. This morning, I was refilling my feeders, and discovered one had cracked, which is probably why I saw my hummers feeding on my blooming petunias and joseph's coat climbing roses. The little guy was going from open bloom to closed bud, trying to get his sugar fix. They're such fun to watch!
I had one get his tiny beak stuck in the screen of my porch last year, couldn't figure out what the buzzing noise was until I saw him, so used my flip flop and gently pressed against his beak from the inside and he broke free.

It's possible the robin is attacking the intruder (his reflection). This happens a lot during nesting season when the birds are feeling very territorial. And it will likely last for quite a while. I had just such a bird (but not a robin) do that to me a few years ago.
