On another topic. The other day I found a dead male Cardinal on our side patio. There was no sign of trauma. However, it reminded me of the awful day last spring when I found 4-5 dead Cardinals lined up on the same patio. Again, no sign of trauma. There are windows they could have struck; I have decals on them to help with prevention (I’m aware the decals are not a complete solution). But they were lined up so neatly I couldn’t believe it was accidental. Had they been killed by a hawk, I would not have expected the bodies to be there. We have indoor cats but they never go out. There are other cats around but not that close to the house; even if they were close our cats would let us know I’m sure.
I have some photos of the immediate area of the house if it would help. I would really be interested in any ideas, advice, etc. anyone has.
