Cardinal vs. Mirror?

He's on a mission...

He WILL destroy the dude on the other side of that mirror who thinks he's prettier than he is!

"Day after day I have come back to face you. I will not give in, EVER!!!"

No animals were harmed during the making of this film.


  1. Great photo story Kim. Brings back most unpleasant memories! There were a couple of summers several years back where this tattered cardinal assaulted my kitchen windows relentlessly all day long. He would show up about 8 a.m. and leave at dusk. It got old. I was afraid he was going to break my windows! I tried everything to discourage him, but he wouldn't be stopped. Crazy.

  2. Too funny, or sad for the very confused bird! :) It's been going on for about a week. Now that we have a rain-free day, we'll be able to see if he's still at it. He's persistent, but at least he's keeping his efforts at close range. AND, he's not at it ALL day long, as yours was. I believe the bus mirror should hold up to his antics. lol

  3. Great story and pics. Funny how birds get territorial in Spring. Somewhere he probably has a mate and he is darn sure the mirror bird isn't going to steal her away.

  4. That is the funniest thing! Silly birds...I have a little bird family that's been nesting on the back porch. Hopefully they won't attack! LOL!
