    I have heard that tinted window film helps... like what is used in vehicles to keep the sun from shining on babies.

    Decals and wind chimes: Place them closely together so that the spaces between them are no more than a 4” wide by 2” high. You can find decals at art and craft supply stores.

    put A wind spinner or mobile in front of the window to use as a scarecrow.

    They probably aren't attacking your windows so much as they're not seeing the window because of a reflection or glare in the morning. Consider decals or something to break up the sight line.

    Sometimes an owl decoy will keep them away!

    Put decals on the window. They may also be seeing their own reflection. Robins will do this.

    They probably can see through to the other side of your home. Try hanging some ribbons in front of the windows to scare them off.

      I HAVE TRIED THE SCARE TAPE FOR BIRDS; I HAVE PUT UP CARDBOARD. I HAVE SPRAYED THAT NASTY FOAM. NOTHING HELPS. I HAVE THE WORLD'S MOST PERSISTENT ROBINS.

    I KNOW THIS. NOTHING I HAVE TRIED WORKS INCLUDING DECALS AND RIBBONS.

    Your window may be reflecting their images at that time of the day and they may be attacking their reflections. Is there any way you can cover your window from the outside so they don't see their reflection. I have used the black foliage cover that nurseries use . It lets the light in as well. I am sure others may have better looking ideas than this but it worked for me.

    Perhaps some "frosted" contact paper on the outside. I seem to remember heraring that the male birds see the reflection and think they are seeing another male moving in on their territory. I think robbins mate more than once in a season, so your problem may persist for some time.

    We had birds flying into our windows because it looked like an open space for them to fly through. We hung some feeders and planters from the eaves to stop them.

    A cheap fix is to tape white paper to the inside in random areas, it breaks up the reflections on the outside
