Angry Bird!

Northern Cardinal

F/6.3, 1/200, ISO 125

Northern Cardinal

Day 117 / 365

You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. For more info ask the pigs!   🙂

Interesting Fact: Many people are perplexed each spring by the sight of a cardinal attacking its reflection in a window, car mirror, or shiny bumper. Both males and females do this, and most often in spring and early summer when they are obsessed with defending their territory against any intruders. Birds may spend hours fighting these intruders without giving up. A few weeks later, as levels of aggressive hormones subside, these attacks should end (though one female kept up this behavior every day or so for six months without stopping).  ( http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Northern_Cardinal/lifehistory )

  1. Oh wow, that’s one angry bird. Yikes.
    Thanks for the info bite 🙂 . Funny enough the game creator(s) might have been attacked by one, and a game was born.

    • I like the way you think, it would be amazing story if that what actually happened. Thank you very much, I appreciate you stopping by and enjoying my work. 🙂

  2. The little Carolina chameleons you can buy in a pet shop also go into DefCon4 when they see themselves in the mirror. Best not to show them!

    • I didn’t know that, thank you very much for sharing this information with us. I always glad to learn something new. 🙂
