    Strange tapping on window, peeping Tom???

    Sitting here online I kept hearing a strange tapping on the window. I turn around and there is a female Cardinal sitting on a branch just pecking away at the window. I have never seen this behavior before but it is entertaining watching her just peck away for no reason at all.

    She sees her reflection and is fighting herself. I've had it happen with a male Robin and a male Cardinal before.

    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    Pretty bird!

    Speaking of peeping Toms, I had one once when I was single and lived in a townhouse. He was my neighbor's pubescent son, and he would pluck some other neighbor's flowers and leave them on my doorstep, and I would catch him in the corner of my eye running to the back of my unit to try to peep in the back door. Poor kid stopped when my would-be husband showed up.

    Could be a ploy to get you open the window or a door. You'd best load up the scattergun and make ready.

    She's in love with you msgt and trying to get your attention.

    If you cropped picture #2 that would be nice enough to frame. Great shot and pretty the way she's sitting on the shrub.

    We had one that used to wake me up as soon as the sun came up EVERY morning and continued to bang away all day for MONTHS. Tried everything recommended on line to cut the reflection so she would go away. Nothing worked.

    Cardinals are beautiful birds but they are totally stupid. Can't even build a nest that holds their eggs! Hoping this won't get me in too much trouble - I'd class cardinals as the blondes of the bird world.

    OK - rant off. Enjoy the bird while you can.
