Cardinals

Good morning
I am new to this site and hope I am posting this correctly. Hello to everyone.
Sadly our female cardinal died after hitting a window. The male cardinal sang from the treetops for 10 days and seems to have now left the area, probably looking for a new mate. It is April now and prime breeding season. It breaks my heart that they made it through a cold, nasty winter to die this way. I hope to see the male return with a new mate.

Hi GMargBirdlover and a warm welcome from me too.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I hope to hear about all the birds you see when out and about.

It's always very sad to lose a creature you've been watching for so long. I used to see a Kestrel hunting every day when I drove to work and was devastated to see it lying dead in the road one morning.

Sorry to hear about your cardinal. Watching them raise their young is always fun.

Thanks for the warm welcome from everyone.
I am a wildlife lover, especially the birds. My husband says I get too involved but I cant help it. I love watching the birds now that I am retired. It definitely is a hobby for me.
I have been trying to keep the starlings out of our nuthatch house. Oh brother, this is a full time job!
