Why would a bird keep flying into different windows everyday; all day long?


I have one doing that and I think it has hit every window in the house. I have heard superstitious reasons for this but I would like a real answer here. I mean it looks to me like it would eventually kill itself. What could be the reason for this?

    Thanks Bob, it doesn't seem suicidal so I go with the second reasoning, although I do fear it could hurt itself. I will try some different things based on what you have told me and see if something will work. Thanks so much!

    I thought it may be seeing his reflection but today is cloudy and all sides of the house would not be the same brightness even at that. I don't have an owl which I looked up and saw recommended but I put solid white poster board with small results.

    Interesting thought Lynda. I have also heard superstition about birds trying to get into a house which I think had to do with death so of course I am not looking that one up! lol

    No my cat is not outside long enough to do any damage; the cold has her shy of outdoors right now. Her bed is just over a heat vent that looks out a window and sometimes the bird picks her window too. lol
