Obsessed Towhee

We have an obsessed California Towhee attacking our car mirrors. A Towhee is a middle sized brown sparrow. For months, we have found our car side mirrors all dirty and bird poop down the door under each mirror. Our Willow Glen neighbor Jamie Lynch has the same problem. He said he saw a Towhee attacking its image in his mirrors and spoke sternly to it. Today, I am working from home and finally caught the crazy little culprit on film:
