> Hey Tweets,


> I was just sitting in my living room and kept hearing a tapping at the

> window where my feeders are on the patio. After watching for a moment I

> noticed a Junco sitting on the railing, and every 10 seconds or so would

> fly directly at the window, and put its feet out as though it wanted to

> perch, but just kicked off the window and went back to the railing. It

> repeated this pattern for about 5 minutes, and keeps coming back after a

> short break. It doesn't appear to be hurting itself at all, just bouncing

> off and landing on the railing.


> Has anyone else noticed this kind of odd behavior from any birds or Juncos

> in particular?


> Cheers,
