Friendly Cardinal


This bright little fellow has been nuisance ever since last spring. He found another Cardinal Rooster to fight and has been at it almost every day. The bird he found is his own reflection in the side mirrors of our vehicles. His fights are very intense complete with fluttering, flogging, and BM’s smeared on the mirrors and doors.

He may be a nuisance but he is a beautiful nuisance. In this case I like having the little guy around to brighten my day.
Anyway my wife cleans the mirrors!

Since we don't have cardinals in the San Francisco Bay Area I was so excited to see my first bird when visiting my Aunt in Minnesota. Its absolutely beautiful, and this picture is a keeper. I agree its a Christmas card for sure.
Hmmm...not too sure about why we women always have to clean up the messes.

I agree with the general consensus. It's picture and Christmas card perfect.

It certainly belongs on a greeting card of some kind. This is simply gorgeous. Now get some shots of him fighting with himself in the mirror.
