Default Crazy Cardinal

I kept hearing a noise in our bedroom but could not see anything when I went in to check on things. Finally, I sat down and stayed real still and this cardinal flies up and attacks himself in the window. Here he is in attack mode and after he dazed himself.

We had one at the last house we owned, those birds are very territorial. Weve even had one attack the shiny diamondplate on our camper.

After just reading the title I thought that maybe you were Catholic, needless to say I was a little off... I enjoy watching birds, Cardinals not so much :)

Edit: well, maybe you are Catholic, but that's beside the point

Or a Louisville, KY fan. We had a bird fly into a glass patio door. He laid on the patio for a few minutes and flew off.

There is a big catbird that attacks my wife's car mirror every day until he's exhausted & can barely fly off. Next day, he's right back there doing it all over again.
