Weird event happening where I live
So yeah, there's been one bird that keeps flying into my bedroom window.

I have curtains on there so I'm not sure why it would constantly be doing this.

When I go outside, I can see other birds trying to do the same with my neighbor's houses.

It happens over and over again, as often as once every 10 to 15 seconds.

This is also the third straight day now, with breaks only at night.

I've never seen such a thing before and I'm curious as to what is going on here.

To be honest, it feels a little like something out of a Stephen King novel.

If this continues one more day, I'm going to take some videos and upload them since it's so weird.

Anyway, can someone explain what these birds are thinking or attempting to do?

Please and thank you.

They are hunting the spiders that live in the corners of the window frame.

They are seeking shelter.


They just don"t get the whole "window" thing.


Perhaps a storm -- of sorts -- is coming.

3 times so far this Spring we've had birds fly into different windows downstairs. First year this has happened.

Birds understand windows just fine.

I have Cardinals that I feed daily on my back porch. Sometimes, I'll leave the back door open and put walnuts on a table I have near the back porch on the inside and when the door is open, they will come in and eat on the table inside the house.

They are just looking for food. Has it rained recently?

Omygosh.

Thank you so much!

For some reason I thought it was a sign of death approaching or something and have been a little spooked these past few days.

No, it hasn't really rained yet this season.

I live on the very north east of Michigan so it's still been a little cold here.

As for the birds constantly hitting the windows, I just didn't understand their strange lack of memory to stop doing this.

When it hasn't rained, I always feed the birds I like more, because it is a little more difficult for them to find the food they are typically after. Might explain part of it.

Some birds are smarter than others. Some are just plain stupid. A friend of mine has a bird that has been trying to get into a window at his business for 5 years... lol.

What kind of birds are they?

Oh hey!

I lived in Lansing too, for nearly 15 years.

I finally decided to make the move and leave last year and it was the best decision of my life.

Did you know it's now the 4th worst city, population under 200,000 in the US according to the FBI?

Get out while you can. :)

It's nesting season. The males get territorial to protect them and when they see their reflection in a window they believe it's another male bird and they're trying to get rid of him.

Cool story bro. Feed them birds. Imagine if you had a camera to video it all. Wouldn't it be great
