I know you were, but the bird doesn't mind. Solly Mack Jan 2016 #14
Okay then. It's a beautiful pic, but this past year I've been pissed off at the cardinals valerief Jan 2016 #15
Yeah, they do that. They can't see the glass. A decal of a predator bird will stop that. Solly Mack Jan 2016 #16
I'll have to do something like that, although the idea of eagles on my windows is valerief Jan 2016 #17
lol! Most any decal should work. That way they know not to fly in that direction. Solly Mack Jan 2016 #19
That's right! I don't want dead birdies on my property. I like listening to them valerief Jan 2016 #20
