A chaffinch keeps pecking at my patio windows and if I move to another room it follows me and again pecks at that window. It’s been doing this every day for weeks! I’ve read all the Webb advice I can find but apart from removing all my feeders there seems to be no easily practical solution.

Hello, I think it is something to do with a reflection. What happens if you draw the curtains? Here are what has happened in the past.

I don’t know why it happens. As I said I just think it could be something to do with a reflection it sees.  It is strange it has happened over a period of time to different people.

I don’t think there is an easy solution, but I would love to know the answer

There’s such a lot we don’t know about these  birds that visit our feeders.  We see them every day and think we know them.  It is not just chaffinches that do this, blue tits have been seen as well.  It must be a strong urge that makes them fly into glass time and again
