 Enclosing an IR cam

I have a Foscam F19821P camera with IR and P/T that I want to use to observe a barn owl box in my barn. I plan to cut an opening on one end of the nest box for the camera to be able to see in, but the camera itself will be housed in a separate box I'm building to protect it from dust, droppings, etc. I had planned to make one end of the camera box out of plexiglass and just slide the camera box up against the hole in the nest box. Problem: while trying out the camera in the house, I put it on a table beside a window. Daytime scenes are fine. At night, however, all I can see is the reflection of the IR LEDs in the window. I figure I'll have this same problem with the camera box if I make it as originally planned. Question: if I install the plexiglass at an angle, will that sufficiently deflect the LEDs and allow the camera to "see through" the plexiglass? If this is viable, at what approximate angle should I install the plexi? What other snafus have I failed to anticipate?
