I actually wondered if maybe it was a juv. male who had a delayed molt, or 
maybe a first year male from an early nesting.

is it possible that some cardinals could be cross-dressers . . . (just talking 
about the bird kind of Cardinals here now)

Through the years I've observed many a male cardinal fight it's reflection in 
car mirrors and windows.  I'd never seen or heard of a female cardinal attack 
it's reflection until this past weekend during a visit to my parents, who live 
in Greenup County in the northeastern corner of the state.   Is anyone else 
familiar with such behavior from a female cardinal?  Is it common?
