Sparrows are pecking at the silicone on my windows causing damage. Any ideas?

Birds usually have a good reason for anything they do … so they may be pecking at insects or wind-blown seeds.

Or they may be attacking what they think of as a rival, though this is more common in nesting.

If you temporarily smear some oil or margarine on the window to smudge the reflection and on the rubber, it might work.
