Chaffinch: Turf wars!  Its definitely springtime, a time when birds are preoccupied with mating, nest building and rearing young.

Birds are trying to establish territories for nesting sites and this instinct sometimes results in them attacking other male birds that are invading the territory - or in this case their own reflection!

This might be one reason not to wash your car, or a good excuse if the Mrs says you need to, so leave that desert sand alone.
