orange and yellow bird that beats against my window

(Wallace N.C.)

I love in N.C. and we now have a strange orange and yellow bird that will beat against the windows of the house and try to get in. We have lived here for 5 years and have never seen any birds of this color. We have some blue birds that will beat against the windows and attack the mirrors on the car but we have never seen any birds of the orange color until this year. There seems to be only the one. If it has a mate we have not seen it. I have not been able to get a picture because when I go to get my camera it is gone. Does anyone have any ideas as to what this bird wants or what kind of bird it is?

Hi, Your bird is a male and thinks it's reflection is another male trying to take his territory. So that your bird doesn't kill himself place decals uniformly approximately 4" apart on the window so your bird will understand that his reflection is not another bird. I don't know what species he is. Let us know his sz compared to a robin, what he eats, and what his markings are and anything else you can think of. Is his head orange and his body yellow, etc.
