Hi, Just signed up here to see if anyone can suggest a way around my miner problem.
Not my favourite bird due to the well known harassing anything in the garden thing (once saw about 6 of them attacking a sea eagle! ... which sadly didn't do what I was urging it to and eventually gave up and left, no doubt for some peace and quiet)
But back to the problem - over the last six months or so they have started to view their reflections in our windows as a territorial threat. Started with one bird doing a wood pecker routine on ground level windows onto the deck, now there is an army of them that repeatedly and very athletically smashing themselves into any window, and it seems to be getting worse (I thought they might lose interest after the breeding season).
Anyone have any success in trapping and relocating them? I have done that with one that flew into the house but my home made spring nets have only proved they are smarter than they look!
Any help gratefully accepted.
