Default Attack Robin

This robin has been attempting to attack his reflection in the window in our kitchen. The window has a film that reflects sunlight so, from his side, he can't see me and he gets a real mirror image. This is the second year this has happened as the cross-members in our pergola provide a nesting place for them.

Sorry about the bad image quality but the light is bad today and the window is far from clean and clear.

LOL. I don't think it is you. I think the bird doesn't like the other robin it sees in the mirror image reflection. And it can't figure out why that other bird doesn't run away. That is his territory, and he is going to protect it. One day he may bump it so hard he knocks himself out.

He's already knocked himself dizzy to the point he fell off the branch! I'm glad I got these shots as he's not there today. If he is, he's not being goofy.
