Lynn,

   He is welcome to come park on the front of my house and maybe he will keep the woodpeckers away. They come down starting right after sunrise and wake us up and make a final visit just before dark and throughout the day. When I get up and go chase them away they fly to the walnut tree 50' away and by the time I return to my seat on the sofa they are back. Its like it is a game with them.

    I got out and took an updated picture of my bluebirds but it is hard to make out much more detail on them. I tried several times to get pictures of the attacking dad as he swooped within 6" of my head but none of my pictures came out with my little point and shoot. I may have to get out there with my wife and her big professional Canon camera and big, fast lenses and try again.

I guess this guy could read and felt right at home.  :)
I bet he was hoping that the birds felt welcome and didn't notice him :)

   I kept hearing a tapping sound and thought Sampson was scratching or moving something on the front porch so I started over to see what he was into. When I got up I noticed it was a male cardinal on the side window on the house. I guess he was having issues with that other bird in the window. :D

Sometimes I return to my truck at the boat launch,  and find a seagull staring into the fender.

I was at a friends parents house that had a finished basement with a windows, a pheasant was standing in front of the window and started to tap on the glass with his beak so they figured it must see it's reflection but I said what's the first thing most people do when they look at a aquarium?

Tap on the glass.

Hilltop,

   Yeah but that is to scare the fish into moving. Do you think the pheasant was trying to scare all of you inside the building? :D

I bought a cheap little solar fountain for the bird bath.  I was trying out different nozzles, checking the spray, abut 8-10 inches high and a hummingbird flew in and kind of settled into the spray.  Less then 2 feet from me, kind of kept an eye on me but just taking his shower.  Spent abut 30 seconds in there and then flew off.

Donít attribute irritating behavior to malevolence when mere stupidity will suffice as an explanation.
