Go home bird, you drunk!
Are you really sure they're birds? I hear the Pterodactyls are migrating now.
(It’s What I Want)
All they want it a safe place to build a nest. We have nesting swallows scanning everywhere around our house right now. They're driving my dogs crazy.
They're probably pecking little no-see-um type insects.
They want you to call an Uber for them, so they don't have to fly the rest of the way North.
This is what it felt like to use a phone booth.
I'll second the reflection-pecking theory. Birds are, in some ways, very smart/instinctual but in other ways the term "bird brained" fits pretty well. We have a window that's covered in bird boogers because a robin repeatedly flew into for a week.
I had a pack (yes, I mean pack) of black birds that would come squawk at me every time I went out on our deck to fire up the BBQ/have a beer/play guitar/etc... and it got really annoying and it was every friggin' time, not to mention the guano everywhere. Solution: cheap air soft gun and make it a sport/drinking game. Worked like a charm, once they realized I could inflict discomfort from 20 ft. away they stopped coming around, like, permanently! Which kind of bummed me out because now I miss the sporting opportunity.
I'm guessing that yes, they're fighting with their own reflections. Birds have been known to do that. It's probably time to establish and defend territory, and these guys see their reflections as competition.
By the way, they may not be stopping anytime soon. When I was a kid we had a cardinal show up every Spring and hang out in this bush near one of our cellar windows. He'd attack his reflection for hours every day.
I vote for this. Same thing happening off our back deck at the windows. Colorful blue and red bird (Male) attacking the window and squaking every morning for over a week. Haven't seen him back for a couple of days- must have scored.
Some believe it's a sign of impending doom. The only way to counteract it is to take your best guitar and leave it in the backyard overnight. If it's gone in the morning, you're saved.
What was the address again???
Put a bird feeder outside?
They, like everyone else, want food, sex and cheap thrills.
What do the Byrds want?
I'm guessing priority #1 would be to re-animate the body of Clarence White.
D'oh, misheard the original post.
It’s mating season......They are just showing off their peckers.
