Indeed – I can think of “PUSH OFF”, “RACK OFF”, “SHOVE OFF” – surely one of those would do it.

Hi Judy,


Birds pecking at windows and mirrors are usually attacking the bird they see reflected there.


One of the best ways of stopping the behaviour is to mask the reflection by sticking a piece of paper or shade cloth on the outside of the window or reflective surface.

My daughter has a flock of White-winged Choughs around her house and in her street in Torrens. They are lovely but they are attacking her windows constantly. She has put several cardboard raptor shapes on windows. She has now got a couple of small owls from a $ shop and a couple of plastic snakes all to no avail.


Can anyone make any suggestion to stop them attacking the windows which is noisy and constant?
