Mr. Bird Brain

24 Nov

This male Cardinal has spent the Summer and Fall fighting with his reflection. I mean, he has NEVER figured it out! He bangs into our sliding glass door, he tangles with the mirrors on our cars, and now he even sees the enemy reflected on our charcoal grill!

We love him. My wife named him Birdbrain 4 or 5 months ago.  Mrs. Brain lives in the arborvitae next door, and she must be proud to watch her husband defend her so valiantly.

The Cardinal not Tetra

27 Mar

My wife and I have been watching this male Cardinal for a few weeks now. He and his wife have a nest in our neighbor’s arborvitae so he must protect his realm.

Here you see him fighting another male Cardinal that simply will not go away.
