Lovely photo, i have to go carefully looking in bushland to see one of these, not something that comes knocking!  Where are you located?

Wow lucky you to have one so close and knocking on your window. Except for the little gifts he would keep leaving for you.

Thanks everyone, i see them often here, but seeing one tap on the window is a first for me.

must be breeding season, had some good falls of rain to break the drought.

Or it might be a bird that, unfortunately, has been fed by neighbours & is looking for a handout rather than rely on its natural habitat for food.

Have had a lot of birds attacking the windows over the years, - they see their reflection and try to chase off the intruder, - seems to happen during the breeding season.

So lucky to have one so close, Woodland Birds are just my fav by far - great capture RR!  Looks likes he's scoping the eaves for spiders, or trying to spy that "other" handsome GW he just saw ;)
