    I have a small bird looks like a finch of some sort, it keeps repeatedly flying at my window.

    The bird sits on the telephone wire which is close to my window, then he hops off the wire and either attacks the window or flys into it. I don't know what is going on with this bird. Does anyone out there know what is going on here? He must be giving himself a real headache.

    He is trying to defend his territory against himself.  It's spring and he has established a mating territory.  He sees his reflection in your window and thinks it is another competitor.  He may continue to do this for a while.  If you turn on a light he will probably quit.  Or a real threat will come along and he will forget about his reflection.

    Thank you so much Jerrzone for anwering my question so promptly, that really makes sense of what seemed to be senseless behaviour. I just hope he stops before he hurts himself.
