Craig, If you EVER get Raging Hormones:
DON'T COME KNOCKING AT MY DOOR
Friedlander / Sacks
as rec by Dinah Washington w The Teddy Brannon Quartet 1947

(listen here)

You went out on a spree,
You never cared about me,
This time I'm really sore!
So don't come a'knockin',
Don't knock at my door!

When I gave you a break
And forgave your mistake,
You tried it more and more!
So don't come a'knockin',
Don't knock at my door!

If I should try to forget all the crazy things you did,
Who would I be foolin', who would I be tryin' to kid?

You were right in the groove
Till you made your last move,
Three strikes against your score!
So don't come a'knockin',
Don't knock at my door!

If I should try to forget all the crazy things you did,
Who would I be foolin', say who would I be tryin' to kid?

You were right in the groove
Till you made your last move,
Three strikes against your score!
So don't come a'knockin',
Don't knock at my door!

Don't start cryin' that song
'Cause you did me wrong,
I don't want you no more!
So please, please, please don't knock at my door!

That is too cute. Interesting too as I once had a cardinal do that (not for 3 hours however) and I wasn't sure why but the reflection thing makes sense.

To discourage an incredibly persistent finch doing this last spring I put up a picture of an owl facing outwards to scare him off. Worked a treat!

Re: A Robin wants in my house!

We've had a robin beating at our windows at the office all week. Somebody tried hanging a CD on a string on the outside of the window and sprinkling pepper flakes on the sill. No joy, he's still at it. He's making a fine mess of the window and environs, too.
