Attack of the Mother Cardinal

Postby E-lad » Sat Mar 29, 2014 12:47 pm

This female cardinal has a nest in the tree outside our spare bedroom. She attacks the window several times a day and sometimes just stands there and watches her reflection.
My efforts trying to sneak up on her to get a picture were in vain so I I set up the video camera yesterday and ran it for 15 minutes and caught her in the act.
I might put the video on a hosting site but until I do here are a few stills I grabbed from the video.
Notice how she has the needles of the branches she lands on pecked off.

No eggs in the nest yet as far as I can tell.
