“A male cardinal is coming regularly, sitting on our BBQ and then flying into our patio door. It does this for a good half hour back and forth. Even though it is a little annoying to listen to, we don’t want to scare it away.” (The bird is seeing its reflection and trying to drive the “intruder” away. DM)
