Aren't robins funny? We have a wall-mounted mailbox by our front door. We have a little roof over the porch and EVERY year, the robins try to build a nest on top of the mailbox. It gets knocked off every day when the mail is delivered because you open the mailbox on top. But, the robins keep trying to build it there. (I often wonder if it's the same robin year after year.) I have thought of buying one of those children's pinwheels to put near the mailbox, but I wouldn't know how to attach it.
We also have a problem this year with a robin flying into one of the garage door windows, pecking at it, etc. It is a mirrored window (so people cannot look into the garage) and I guess this bird thinks it's seeing another bird. Trying to mate maybe? We cannot figure out how to get it to stop doing this either!
