Northern Cardinal - Cardinalis cardinalis This bird has a reputation. She keeps attacking the side mirror on my stepfather&#039;s truck. She sees the &quot;other bird&quot; in the reflection of the mirror and apparently doesn&#039;t like her. Here she is taking a break in a nearby tree.<br />

Northern Cardinal - Cardinalis cardinalis

This bird has a reputation. She keeps attacking the side mirror on my stepfather's truck. She sees the "other bird" in the reflection of the mirror and apparently doesn't like her. Here she is taking a break in a nearby tree.

    1. Thanks! I don't think she had a mate with her and am guessing he got fed up with his partner's obsession and left her. Posted one year ago
