BLUE TIT CRASHING INTO WINDOW

I have a blue tit that keeps craching into a window.

I’m sure it’s to do with reflection.

I have a demented juvenile blue tit crashing between my bathroom (frosted) window and my neighbour’s identical bathroom window (about 3 yards away) directly opposite like a ping pong ball! Starts at about 0630 every morning (it’s now September) and goes on intermittently throughout the day. Silence (relief) at night.

Been going on now for nearly a fortnight. Tried all your suggestions without any luck. Thinking of fitting cardboard on the outside the window – to block all reflection. Hopefully it should stop him ‘attacking’ himself. We’ll see…

What amazes me is how the blue tits survive.  They must hurt themselves crashing into glass, yet they don’t stop.  I’ve tried to find out more, but cannot.  I wonder – is the blue tit different in some way to all the other wild birds?

As they only fly into glass I suppose the only way is to put something over the glass window and make it so the blue tit cannot see any glass, but that is easier said than done.

I hope it stops soon.  It must be upsetting seeing it happen

    We had a problem with pigeons crashing into our windows (about three a week or so) so I stuck some stickers on the window which are almost invisible to us (well they’re see through at least) and the birds don’t crash into the windows any more (well we had one a few weeks ago – it must have been blind or something – one in about 6 months isn’t really bad I think. I’m really pleased about the stickers. Maybe you should try some.
