And my gorgeous male's mate came a-calling

On the morning we were breaking came - the little woman popped in to  check out who her man was flirting with.

She was a lot shyer than he was and I had to work for these pix.

And maybe downright snooty.

Made herself at home on the Mister's bike. Hitching a ride.

Duck and cover. Remember that? And doesn't that quite date those of us who do. 

This is a female cardinal and while she is pretty - she can't outdo the male who is positively gorgeous.
It's her job to protect the nest and blend in.

  4. Haha, sounds like Connie has the same issue. My wildlife friends said it was a competitive thing the males do. They see their reflection in the window and think it is another male they are fighting with.
