I'd just like to start by saying i'm not experiencing any symptoms of
schizophrenia or phychosis. I would like to consider myself a fairly rational,
sceptical human being. I have no idea what forum to put this in, it isn't a rant.
Anyway, groups of pigeons, usually 3 or 4, will sit staring into my window,
not randomly around my room, but directly at me. There is another
person's room about 4 feet from my window, but they only sit near mine.
They repeatedly fly at my windows and i'm getting jumpy at all
the *bangs* on my window from 'bird strike', and tired of washing
off that dusty winged imprint they leave behind. The other day I was
sitting at my desk and a pigeon flew up to the open window,
and while fluttering tried it's best to work it's way under the bars
and get into my room. When I chase them off they come back within 30 to 45 minutes.
It doesn't happen every day, but every few, and they can do it for consecutive days.
(While walking through town I was followed a whole suburban block by a pigeon walking
behind me, though I don't think that's related.)
I've had third pary confirmation from people who've seen them watching me too,
so I know this isn't in my head. I'm quite prepared for the ridicule i'm going
to get for this, but can anyone offer any explanation or insight into bird behaviour
that would help me understand this? Is it my scent or a scent in my room that could
be attracting them? (I'm a cat owner , and they've tried to get in my room while she
was sleeping on my bed beneath the window, I would think her scent would scare them off.)
Is it a colour in my room? It's happened on both rainy and sunny days, so I know they're
not trying to escape from any weather conditions, and there are eaves around my house
so I don't think they're just choosing a bad place to nest.
Please help, it's starting to freak me out and make me uncomfortable around pigeons,
I don't like being stared at. Oh, and I thought of taking multiple pictures on different
days, so people would see the change in weather patterns and amount and positioning
of birds so i'd have some proof, but I only have my camera phone and the lighting
makes the pictures from my room look like over-exposed glare. Any suggestions on that?
