Birds and windows

Yesterday I needed to wash the windows because of what the birds had done. I carefully washed all the windows of the house and felt quite proud of myself. When I came in, I was told that I had missed one window. I was adamant that I hadn't missed any. However, when I looked, I noticed that the birds had been busy. By the time I got back out a few minutes later, I had to reclean three windows. Today all south-facing windows have bird droppings on them. I'll wait until the wind dies down before I clean again.

In the meantime, we do have the grackles, red winged and other blackbirds on the lawn. Yesterday morning we saw a female purple finch. The white throated sparrows are still around and are waiting for the white crowned and Harris sparrows.
