For the last week, a bird has been flying repeatedly into my glass door. The creature perches in the window box, then flies into the glass, and does this over and over, intermittently during the day. For days. It's happening right now. What does this mean?
I know this is nesting time, and several generations of house finches have built and rebuilt their nests in our awnings over the last 10 years. This is not a house finch. It is larger. And smoother. And it looks solitary. Is it trying to make a nest, then hitting a wall while checking out the space, then forgetting and doing it all over again?
Is it a signal from the universe? What wall do I keep banging MY head against? What do I need to open the door to??
I asked my husband. He says they don't call'em "bird brains"for nothing.
