Stupid cardinal

We've had this pair of cardinals around our house for a couple of weeks now. The female has been flying into our window repeatedly, so I got window chalk and wrote on it, "Not the sky! No fly zone!" That slowed her down some. Today I come home and she is going back and forth between two garden mirrors trying to attack her reflection as her mate looks on. I saw him shaking his head once. I took a short video. UGH! The link won't show you the video, but it will show you a shot of her in mid air.

I have to admit I laughed out loud reading your post.

Cute photo with her heading into the window like a rocket. Thanks for the smile.

RE: Stupid cardinal

Great photo!! I have a dumb red male around me. He is always attacking his reflection in the Van mirror. I can tell when he is around because of the white poo on the van driver's door. My husband is always leaving his windows down and leaves such a nice perch by the mirror. he attacks my windows and doors also. I saw him out by the van so he's back.
