    My first husband and I lived in a large 2 storey home with very large glass double doors across the back of the house. We always had birds flying into it, particularly after we had a reflective flim put on it to stop the sun coming in. Thsi was fine when the doors were open (there were no screens) but when they were clsoed the poor buggars would smack so hard into the glass.

    I was always scared they would die of fright inside. I recall when I was a little girl, my girlfriend and I were chasing a bird around her garage trying to get it outside and it fell down stone dead after a few minutes. I felt awful about it and cried.

    Ok Di, it has left the tree and flown up into some larger ones. Can't see it now but saw it fly up there. So now I guess it will just recuperate.

    What do I do about all the birds. I'm not kidding or axagerating - none of us have ever seen anything like this. The trees around our yard are big, some up to 65 years old, and it is like a beauitful wonderland with the birds all day (even at 5.00am in the morning I find it still beautiful) but how can I stop them flying into the house and so close to the doorways?

    Maybe hang something in the doorway that will frighten them and not allow them to come close to the door??

    That sounds good, just not a bird-feeder. Lol.

    We have gas scare guns for in the rice paddocks with ducks, a bit overkill for your situation though.

    Ok ok, we are having pie for tea tonight. Hey, could kill two birds with one stone here.

    Cripes, just realised what a badly timed insensitive pun that was! Lol.

    Pie dishes stop the birds, and decorating them keeps the youngest quiet and entertained for a good while. Thanks.
