How do I get this bird to stop hurling itself into my sliding glass door?

As you say, the bird sees it's reflection as a "rival bird."

Thank you for all your thoughts and suggestions...I've tried several of them.

I put a picture of a "bird of prey" in the window (above).

It was (also) suggested that I "break up" the big glass window with tape...

...and, if that fails, cover the glass with paper.

No reflection, no bird.  Right?

At 6:30 this morning, I woke up to tapping on my bedroom window.

I know that sound.

Seriously? (Craig Allen photo)

Suddenly, the "bluebird of unhappiness" has had it's fill of the sliding glass door, and has moved it's obsession...
