It's springtime and if you've been waking up to robins attacking the windows in your house, don't worry...there are things you can do to stop it.

Robins can be relentless!  They're a great sign that spring is here in New York, but when they run into your windows, it can not only be annoying, it can be dangerous for them and mean trouble for your house.  How do you get them to stop?

First of all, why do they do it?

You may have already tried to figure out why they're doing it.  Are they angry with you?  Do they just hate windows?

Nope...robins are just very territorial.  Most of the robins that you see attacking glass are doing it because they're seeing their own reflection and trying to protect their territory.  Chances are, there's a nest nearby.

Can you do something to stop it without hurting the bird?

Yes.  There are plenty of options to try.  Essentially, the best thing to do is to remove the "image bird" or the bird's reflection from the window.  Make it so that the robin doesn't see another bird in your window.

Unfortunately, they aren't all 100% guaranteed.  Some will work for a little while, and others are just unsightly to try.  But they're all methods that people have tried and worked at one point or another.  Heck, they have to be better than cleaning the windows all the time and waking up to a bird pecking at your window!
