Robins and wild canaries is what it sounds like. Shoot 5/6 robins and they won't come near anything associated with you.

They are being territorial. That is natural in the spring. They see their reflection and think it is another male horning in on their territory (you should be thanking God that it is not a turkey!). If they are just going after the mirrors then cover them with a rag. Use a sleeve from a shirt and slip it over the mirrors.
