I’d imagined this moment so many times, but I never expected that a bird so small would steal the seed right out of my mouth!
That’s right. Here I am, a full-size scarlet Cardinal and he’s a tiny Chipping Sparrow. Who knew he was standing right behind me? It’s not like I had a mirror. While I have terrific vision, I can’t see behind me.
You just can’t trust other birds. They act trustworthy, but they’ll take the last seed from the feeder. I tried to discuss it with him, but he laughed at me. No one takes me seriously.
Is it because I’m so red? You know, I’m more than my color! I’m a real BIRD!
