How, oh how, is this creature still alive?

     Every morning at 6:30 am, this little rascal is tapping his Reveille at the window. You'd think the barn cats would have gotten him by now.  (not that I want them to!)  Other Half, on the other hand, has about had it with our peeping tom.  (remember, he works night shift) Just about the time he is getting to sleep, someone starts tapping out a Morse code on the bedroom window. 

I have christened this "Summer of the Cardinal."

Please ignore the dirty windows. For some reason, in addition to the normal dirt, I have bird slobber on them.  (Do birds have slobber?)

What about covering the window on the outside with cardboard or newspaper (to dull the reflection) for a few days, until the little bastard gives up and goes elsewhere? I would suggest strong blast from a hose, now that would be funny as hell - especially if you were photographing it from the inside! (sorry I am a wee bit 'aggressive' today).

Perhaps a picture of a cat taped to the inside of the window? Seriously, you need to do something to stop the reflection. Jan

Ha! That would require me to tape EVERY window of the house AND the horse trailer. Not only do I not have time for that, somehow I would hate to have to explain that to my realtor before she's expected to show this house to homebuyers. Redmon is on his own. This is Darwinism at work. (I kinda hope he makes it though!)

Maybe since he sees you feeding all of your animals, he wants some food too. Can you put a bird feeder close to, but not right by, the window to distract him? I have no idea if cardinals are smart enough to be trained......

If I put a feeder close by it will attract other birds and most certainly . . . the barn cats!
