Last night as I was filling the feeder, I spotted Carl’s girlfriend, Carly, peeking at me from the neighbor’s yard. I called her over as I was opening the garage door, figuring she would go to the feeder, but that’s not what happened at all! I proceeded to pull the car into the garage and as I was closing the garage door I heard a tiny little cardinal chirp behind me. I turned around to investigate, and it was her, clinging to a low hanging branch right next to the garage, waiting patiently for some peanuts! I laughed all the way into the house and to the back door, where I found her looking in the window from her favorite peanutty perch!
