    Cardinal hates my car.

    This cardinal has a deep hatred for my car. For months the same cardinal goes to my drivers side mirror and attacks it's reflection in my window and scratches and pecks for about 15 minutes and it's an almost daily occurrence. Sometimes he'll go at it for a few minutes. Leave. Come back and do it again. Never happens to my husband's car. And it's always the drivers side. Yes those are actual scratches, some of it can be wiped off but it's a lot of scratches in there.

    Woodpecker problems

    So my husband and I have been living in an apartment building made of wood (husband calls it the Pressboard Palace lmao) for a few years and recently some woodpeckers have decided to peck at the exterior wall of our unit constantly. I literally mean for hours during the day on the wall where my home office/bedroom is. I meet with clients virtually all day, and it is a major distraction.

    Unfortunately due to the layout of the room/closet we can’t move our bed to the other side of the room but it’s honestly still loud AF across the whole apartment too. We have tried everything we could think of, playing predator/woodpecker in distress sounds, making a mixture of different spices & herbs they don’t like and spraying it on the side of the building, going out there to scare them off. We think they are trying to nest, so a suet feeder would probably be useless at best, or attract more woodpeckers at worst…

    Our property management company came out to repair the hole they’d made in the wood (put a strip of metal to protect it) but a few days later they just made another hole in a different spot a few inches away. We’re at our wits end from the pecking. Wondering if anyone has ideas of what we can do?? We will probably notify the PM company that they’re back but wondering if there are other things we can try too. TIA!

    Sparrow outside chirping from 6am until 8pm and attacks when I go outside.

    This thing comes back every year. Western PA.

    It sits on the roof of my neighbor's house. Our houses are about 10 feet apart.

    The bird nests in the gutter of his house and clogs it. Every year, it rains and it loses the nesting.

    It builds more. The chirping is about 1x per second and it's LOUD. I work from home and people can hear it on calls. I have never heard something so small make so much noise. And it doesn't stop for breaks.

    When I walk outside to my car, it comes after me. It dive bombs me as if it's going to attack after the nest is built and eggs are laid. It swoops my head and has never hit me but comes close. It comes after anyone who approaches the front door (mailman).

    I know I can't remove it. I tried a fake owl which did nothing.

    Has anyone had this issue?

    I’m officially going crazy. Bird chirping non-stop at midnight???

    I’m going crazy, about 3 weeks ago a bird just came to my street and settled in my neighbors tree. Every single night, 9pm-4am, the bird decides to chirp loudly. Is it common for them to do this nonstop every single night? I literally have to put some background noise to be able to sleep. This bird does different chirping noises every minute or so. Almost sounds like if it was a robot controlled bird. It’s driving me so crazy, I wanna shoot the dang bird. It’s so fricken annoying. It’s currently 12:34AM and I’m so irritated. My intrusive thoughts make me want to go to my neighbor’s tree and shake it so the dang bird can leave my street. 😡

    What kind of hummingbird does this guy think he is? He and his aggressive buddies drink all the food and chase the lil guys away. Frowny face.

    Apparently the dogs having food is simply not acceptable.

    Help!

    A bird has recently started attacking his reflection in my window EVERY SINGLE DAY. I park in the same spot in my driveway that I always have. If I clean my car and window it will look almost exactly like this the next day. As far as I can see there is no nest or anything near my car, so I have no idea why he has chosen this path of violence. In an effort to not get any more bird poop on my hand, or murder a bird, I am reaching out to you lovely folks who hopefully have some ideas to stop this. I really appreciate the help!
