Female Cardinal Wants To Come In My House

by Ana
(North Carolina)

Hello, I am a bird enthusiast, my back yard is full of bird houses and bird friendly. What I would like to ask is that is it common

for a female cardinal to try and come into the house? It started last year, that she would bang
the glass with her beak in our den window. This year she follows me to the second floor. Someone told me that if they see light on the
other side they might want to get thru, this is not the case, and my windows have grids. Is there anything I can do to make her stop that? I am afraid she will hurt herself.
Thank you.

Cardinals pecking at the window
by: Susan

Cardinals are highly protective of their territory. They mate for life and will inhabit the same vicinity for several years. Often they will raise three or four broods during the breeding season.
When cardinals see their reflection in the window or glass door, they often mistake it for another bird and will attack the image over and over.

There has been a pair hanging out on the back porch since last year. The female repeatedly taps on the back door every single day rain or shine. What do we do?

As I write this a female cardinal is continually tapping on my patio door trying to gain access to my apartment. I placed some peanut butter out there but it ignores this and persists on trying to gain access. What's up with this?
