IKE... the cardinal...

 Meet Ike.
Ike is a regular at momma birdfeeders.
 And he has a real problem with his reflection on our windows.
Today he really attacked his reflection
and found himself on the ground.
Luckily, momma was sitting right there and ran out to pick him up.
Not seeing much damage, she held him and waited for him to decide to return to the wild.
She picked him up and was able to carry him into the house
 to grab her camera.
I tried to help but she wouldn't  let me.
You will see the different backgrounds, as she stood in the yard,
 on the front porch and he stayed while she walked down the driveway to get the mail.
He was very content to sit on her hand
 and let her take all the pictures she wanted.
 She took tons of pictures and if you want to see them all,
