We had to put covering on windows in sun room. A male cardinal attacks his reflection all day long real hard. .It is noisy and annoying. I think it just last through mating season. The feeder is just out the windows. Then Daisy goes on alert from the action. Maybe the term bird-brain was derived from this reflective boxing. Is the bird an idiot? It is always just one they does it.
The covering seemed to stop most of it.

Do you live by water? Lake or river.
Looks like a lesser blue heron. Beautiful shot. I saw one swallow a large fish once
I live in La Porte so pretty close to the bay (salt water). He/she is a grey color with blue tint, legs are long and dark (black, maybe?), and forehead is yellow.

My brother in San Marcos took this picture in his back yard. He said it was huge. Is it a great horned owl?

Saw a couple of baby red birds about dusk. The mother was encourage them to fly. It is always a race before a cat or snake get them. Hope they made it,

bird adventure. Two Red Bird males banging on the windows fighting their reflections all day. Went to the Thorndale Mall (Dollar General) got balloons and hope it will stop the racket.

I saw the Cooperā€™s Hawks who nest in the pecan tree across the street today. Gorgeous birds, and they fly low over my house and yard often.
