They have a beautiful song. When we were first married, living in Highland Falls, NY, we had a pair nesting in a tree outside our window. Loved hearing the male singing every morning.

My parents had a bird that pecked the side mirrors on their car, leaving scratches. They bought two rubber snakes and draped them over the mirrors. When they moved to a retirement complex in Florida, a neighbor had the wiring in her car replaced two times- squirrels! Dad had a rubber snake that he would put over the engine, placed it so it wouldn't melt.

Cool photo. I see Cardinals virtually every day in my back yard, among other birds, squirrels, rabbits, etc. And I live in the city :). I'd enjoy the birds MUCH more if they'd stop crapping all over my deck and start crapping on my jerk neighbor...

Not only does he attack the mirror, he craps all over her door.
She is not happy with this stupid bird.
Since it's been raining for about a month straight, he hasn't attacked it lately.

We had one fly into our house the other day. My wife's Bichon just sat and looked at the bird until it finally flew out the open door and sat on the steps of the porch. Bella, then went and sniffed the bird, but other than that did not show any aggression towards the bird. She loves to watch the turkeys come up onto the road that runs from one end of the property to the other in front of the house, and then whines when they leave to go about their business.

We are still under siege by the cardinal. He has attacked nearly every window in our house, freaked our little dog out and yes he is now attacking the side mirror and windshield of my truck. In addition to all this, he is entertaining a lady friend. He has got to run out of energy soon..

You might try an owl decoy nearby. They tend to make the smaller birds nervous enough to leave the area.

After replacing the wiring in his truck three times, my dad sprayed the wires with clear spray lacquer, and dusted the wet lacquer with cayenne pepper. End of problem.
