A couple days ago I noticed that it looked like birds had been flying into the doors based on the crap that’s on them.
So while I was cooking dinner tonight, I kept hearing a sound like something was running into the windows. So finally, I’m just kind of looking out onto my deck (there was still daylight out there, which is also a nice change), seeing that there is all kinds of bird crap that I’ll need to hose off this weekend (if I’m lucky, the rain will do that tonight), and then see a bird that just keeps flying into my sliding glass door.
It would just kind of hover in front of the window and then fly into it. Hover and then fly into it. It did this for about 10 minutes. The kicker is, it just wasn’t the one sliding door it kept flying into. I have two doors that go out onto my deck, one on one side of the room and one on another side, and it was flying into both of them. Between these repeated attempts at futility, I saw the bird sitting on the corner of the table on my deck, and now have a really good idea about why there is all kind of crap right there. This bird must have been doing this for a long time.
