Female Cardinal

(Emmaus, Pennsylvania)

I have a female cardinal at my window of my office she sits on a bush outside my window then flies to the window like she is trying to get in. Then she flies off and I can hear her signing and then she comes back. I have seen the male cardinal a few times also. I am afraid she is going to hurt herself is there anything I can do?

I have the same problem with an especially stubborn Eastern Bluebird. If she is back this year, it will be the third year in a row. I think she wants to scare away the other female she sees in the reflection of the window, but this goofy chick (pun intended) actually flies around the house, scaring away ALL those other pesky other females! Last year she was stalking my husband. EVERY room he was in, she found the window and dive bombed it several times. The poor little male is just hovering, trying to get her attention. It's comical to watch, but I, too am afraid she will hurt herself.

    A relative went to HB class. They found it is safe and more effective to use 2 water to 1 sugar. I use 4 cups of boiling water into 2 cups sugar.
