The battle between the Cardinals started a month or so ago. First we noticed that a new Cardinal was coming to the feeders regularly and chasing all other birds away. Then he started coming to the picture window and pecking at it and flying up to it, fighting his reflection in the window. I didn't want him to hurt himself, so I put this guy in the window as a detourant.
Nope, the monkey didn't scare him at all. Guistopo just kept flying up and pecking at his reflection. Then he would fly up in the tree and wait for another bird to come to the feeders so he could chase them off. Then he would fly to the back yard and peck at this yard Thing- a- Mabob.
Guess what! Here he is, waiting to fight himself in this window. The window air conditioner is in this window, so I put potted Geraniums on top of the air conditioner hoping to keep him safe. But nope, not Mr B. Pretty soon he ignored the flowers.
Sooooo, I put this guy on the table in front of the window looking out. He'd scare anyone away, don't you think? Not Mr. B.
