Birds Hitting Windows
 
We've had our new Redwood for about three months & keep it stationary in a campground. One of the sides backs right to trees and lower foliage. "Dummy" as we affectionately call him is a beautiful cardinal who isn't very smart & must have one heck of a headache. He keeps seeing his reflection in the windows & attacks them repeatedly. Any suggestions to stop this, without covering our windows? Not only do we want him to stop hurting himself, but the sound of "whack! thud!" is driving us crazy!

Well I guess if you are worried about him hurting himself a BB gun isn't the solution, maybe you could borrow someones cat.

We had a bird with the same problem at our last campground, called him Thumper. Amazingly enough, we miss the sound now.

We had this happen at one of our homes. We tried with success, aluminum foil on the inside which seemed to break up his reflection. We left it in place about a week. Took it off and didn't have anymore problems.
Good luck!

I had a cardinal do the same thing at Toledo Bend State Park. They do it when the female is sitting on the nest. They think they are another bird in the reflection and attach it to protect her. I really thought it was going to hurt him. He did it everyday until we left.
