Birds and Windows

Published by at 1:45 PM under Birds,Bluebird,Miscellaneous,Wildlife

This photo shows a Western Bluebird male flying against my front room window. I presume he is attacking his reflected image in the window. He and his mate are in the process of setting up house keeping in one of the nest boxes in the yard. It is common for birds to defend their territory from intruders.

The day before this incident occurred I came home from an outing, unlocked the door and entered the house. To my dismay I found a female Western Bluebird fluttering against this very same window attempting to find her way out. I opened an outside door and persuaded this little lady to use that as an exit. I have yet to discover how this bird found entrance into my home. She is now carrying on her normal duties of building her nest in a nest box.
