The Cardinal, The Head and The Dip Net

A few minutes ago I posted on Facebook that it was sleeting. Hubby decided to go see if we had mail. He opened the front door and a male Cardinal was in the lattice by the door and flew in. I heard this "cheep" and thought, "that sounds like a Cardinal". Yep, he flew in and landed on every surface in my computer room. He landed on the Chief's stuff. Not the Cardinals things.
