My wife lost her father when he was a young 53 years old. He was a life long Cardinals fan and the family has always said that whenever a cardinal is nearby it is her dad talking to her from the other side. We have noticed cardinals a very coincidental times too, for instance the day we miscarried, I had to leave her because I had gotten a call that my pontoon was sinking, and on the way back I hit and killed a cardinal with the truck on an interstate. Weird,but it has always been a half joke. Well, yesterday we were going to a Cardinals, Pirates game and 2 days ago we had a cardinal start flying into our french doors. The next morning he did it and upon inspection I noticed that he has left hundreds of beak marks on the glass. I closed the screen door and he went to the other side. I called my mother in law and she is fine and the family is fine but she was worried about us traveling yesterday. We made it home safely last night (Cards lost) This morning the dang bird was back at it. I thought maybe it was seeing it's reflection and was trying to fend off other males, but the reflection from his angle (yes i got my eyes down to where his would be) is the sky. So, I put little pieces of electrical tape up there to try to give him prospective. When I left this morning he was flying against the glass trying to pull the tape off! What's up with this bird? Any help appreciated and yes this is a true happening going on as we speak.
