it started the day after Dad was entombed in the masolieum . Mom has always fed the birds but never had a lone cardinal . If you know about birds , Cardinals are never alone . There is always one male and one female . I know you are going to think I have completely gone bonkers . I thought MoM had until I saw it for myself . From the time she gets up, this cardinal flies into her window , we thought at first it was just a brain damaged bird and it would kill itself . But every morning the same thing, it wakes Mom as he starts at the bedroom window and he will keep doing it until she gets up . Once up and having her morning coffee , this bird is literally bouncing off the sun room window . If she goes up for a nap, the bird sits on the balcony until she wakes and he starts flying into the window again ! Is it possible that this cardinal is her husband . I suggested to Mom to leave the sliding doors open and get a bird cage . Perhaps he'll fly in and go in the cage because him flying into the window is driving her crazy . Thoughts, I'm very serious about this !
