Hummingbird just about to hit the window!

OK Mike you push me and push me until I put all my cards on the table!


The bird in the previous picture is a psychopathic basket case who has a self image problem. She hates her self image and flies into the window to show it what for the problem is that is damaging her beak.

She clearly has no kids at home as she spend all her time guarding her sugar water supply from that rascal reflection and sunning herself......

Just checking her appearance?

She flies into the window Mike often at speed and hits the glass with her feet or her beak. She's trying to warn off the other bird from her food source.

She does it all day long

So maybe the bird loves the sport of jousting.. Kind of reminds me of the old video game. :)

I must be too young to know that one Ben

Welcome back stranger - I found your pics of the eclipse quite interesting - I'm looking forward to knowing how you did those.

We moved the feeder and now she is checking us out - she is psychotic!

Best wishes to you and yours from North Carolina - Jethro

Excellent shot, Jethro. I love the ghost-y image of wings. Very well done! YS and like Cheers - Patty

Y*! I've heard of robins 'fighting' their own reflections, Jethro. Perhaps the answer here is net curtains outside the window. Just a thought.

Best wishes, Brian.

.... that would be what we call a bug screen Brian. I think we have one somewhere for this window, but as its at an inconvenient height and location.... it has been painted shut.

We moved the feeder to a safer location and - problem solved.


Best wishes - Jethro
