    Are cardinals truly aggressive? I've never seen them behave that way around here.

    From observing the behavior of the birdies coming to our feeder, the who's wary of who pecking (I crack myself up) order seems t be: Nobody bothers a woodpecker. Blue Jays are bullies who chase the smaller birds away. Cardinals share with everybody bar...blue jays - maybe they are the Robin Hoods of backyard birdies.

    Yes cardinals can be quite aggressive. Not at the level of mockingbirds nor some larger birds (e.g., goshawks) when nesting -- but male cardinals are notorious for attacking windows, mirrors and other shiny surfaces when they see their reflection & think it's a rival male. :o

    Our across-the-road neighbor (now, sadly, deceased) had damage (to the finish) done to his nearly-new F-250 pickup by the attacks of an aggressive male cardinal a couple of years ago.

    Lou Brock was pretty aggressive at stealing bases and he was a Cardinal. :|

    How aggressive are cardinals? At least twice a year I’ll get dive bombed by a cardinal through my deer blind window. It took me awhile to figure out what provoked the attack. The attacks happened when I was using my big Sony digital camera or binoculars. The flash of the glass lens attracted the cardinals in defense. That picture is pretty accurate but does not show the brown spot in the photographers drawers…don’t ask how I know
