They saw their reflection, thought they had intruders in their territory and were trying to drive them away. Not at all unusual.

I had a Robin do that to the side of my car for several days straight. Really scratched the hell out of my paint. Luckily it all buffed out.

OMG I have the same thing going on with my bumper. I have a red GC, and I think my cardinal thinks it's a big bird. He does it when I wash the car. Where I park it, there is bird droppings under the bumper.

Today he was on the chrome mirror trying to attack it, but then attacked the bumper.

I'm on my phone, so thats probably my problem, but what are we supposed to see? Scratches on the chrome or on the paint?

Look closer, just past the chrome, you can see the bird hiding in there.

What you're supposed to see is the freakin birds took the sheet & put it on the hood so they could attack the lower bumper!!!!!

I can understand if its exposed & they see their reflection at this time of year (mating season, territorial), but they LIKE doing it so much, they freakin LIFT THE SHEET UP TO UNCOVER THE BUMPER????

Thats CRAZY...................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad:

I'm going to put some weights on the sheet at the ground level so they can't lift it up!
