I had been hearing strange knocking sounds in the house for days. When I finally snuck around the house to learn the source, I discovered that a robin was pecking at our basement window, over and over and over again.
Hmmm. Did he want to come in and see what was on TV or did he think that the stuffed Pittsburgh Pirate Parrots sitting in the window well were long-lost relatives?
Then last night we found TWO robins pecking away at the patio door in the basement. Guess when a window doesn't open, maybe a door will?
It's hard to figure out a bird's intention, but this is a little odd, don't you think?
