In Love with Self

Enjoying his reflection in the sliding glass window on the deck, this robin red breast hops back and forth on the deck for long blocks of time. And it doesn’t seem to matter if people are here! At first I marveled at nature’s ways but now, after cleaning up the deck for the umpteenth time, I enlisted the help of a sympathetic renter to erect chicken wire deterrents. It worked! Except now he’s found the brass kick plates on the front door!

Upon reading up on robins, it’s actually territory that he’s defending from those invasive, ever-present, mean reflections. I’ll be glad when mating season is over.
