Remember that crazy robin I told you about, that was pecking at it's reflection on the basement window? The other day when I went out on my mother's porch, I saw it sitting on the side view mirror of my mom's car. I thought it was a bit of a strange place for it to perch on, but I was happy to see it somewhere besides in front of the basement window.
Later in the day, I had to use the car to make a run to the grocery for some supplies. I noticed when I opened the car door that there was a splatter of bird poop on the floor beneath the mirror. Then when I was in the car and glanced over at the side view mirror, I noticed that there was a multitude of smudge marks on it's mirror surface, where the robin had been leaning over the top of the mirror, pecking at his reflection.
I hope you see the smudge marks in the mirror. All the lines you see are from the siding in the carport.
