American Robin on my Car

The last few days I have been spotting an American Robin acting strangely towards my car. I’ve known birds to attack their reflections and assumed this was the case here. But she seems to be beyond that.

The bird works her way around the roof, sits on the side mirrors and defiles the moonroof. Often times this is done while holding nesting materials.

She has built a wonderful, muddy nest on the light fixture by the front door. I figure she is being protective of her territory but the way she works over my car is comical. And a bit abnormal. Or at least not something I’ve witnessed before (besides basic reflection boxing).

I’ll try for some video and more pictures, especially of the nest. I don’t know if she will continue with this nest because of the people/dog traffic out the door but we will see.
