Agree, most likely thinking it is a place to nest. I have a camera mounted under an eave and the same thing is happening. The camera has had a starling (looks like the same type as the one on your cam) take a run at the camera two or three times.

I have a couple of wild guesses:

The birds see a reflection of something like a worm or bug in the lens and then try to go after it.
Or, the IR LEDs look like something worth eating like small berries.

Dome, but one of the new big bodied 5MP ones from Dahua. Camera does have a large, black face.

They drilled into the front facade columns a couple of years ago. They're now living in it. I don't have the heart to turn them out.
I hear ya. I've been meaning to evict 2 families from my siding from last year. They are likely gone, hopefully no new tenants are already in there.
