Our Wacky Red Male Cardinal

Sunday, June 22, 2014

He is beautiful!
He is bright red!
He is persistent!
He is wacky!!!
For 3 months this beautiful red cardinal has flown into our windows with all of his strength!
Not once a day! Not twice a day! But countless times a day!
Not one window! Not two windows! But almost every window in the house!
Not one house, but at least two as he goes next door to our son's and repeats his antics!
He wakens me at 6:15 as his beak hits windows numerous times!
This continues until about noon when he must take a siesta, then resumes in PM until about 6 in the evening.
Can you imagine the bird poo on our decks and window sills as he hits so hard he releases that poo.
Tried aluminum foil streamers - no avail!
Tried Insect Spray all around windows - no avail!
Can't ever get windows washed!
Then I hear the beautiful song of the cardinal calling "Pretty! Pretty"! about 8 PM.
Is his wife calling him home?
Can you shed any light on this strange behavior of a bird???

    Something is very wrong with him and he needs help. You might want to contact animal control and ask them what could be done.

    That is truly wacky!! Is this in NC or still down in FL? You could call the state wildlife folks.
