A month a ago i captured a “strange” behavior from a Motacilla cinerea (Σταχτοσουσουράδα).

The bird attacked the car side mirror several times, probably trying to pursuit the intruder !!

It was the third time this year i noticed such a behavior form this species at the exactly same place.

  1. I have the same behavior every year with Blue Tits that nest in hole in a hole in my house wall.its territorial

  2. A couple of years ago a female blackbird did this in my garden, it pecked the mirror a couple of times then started grooming itself in front of it.. i think its kinda normal.

  3. Yes it seems they believe it as an intruder – different individual – and they attack it for territorial reason. Lost energy !
