Chasing the uncatchable

I had just perfected the morning cup of coffee a moment ago and I noticed an un-robin-like and un-junco-like activity in the apple tree area. One bird was chasing another and the second bird was just slipping away like oil from the first one. First bird never really got close.

Upon closer look it was a cardinal pair, similar to these two. He's brilliant and immistakable, and she's just a place where the wind separates, she's so hard to see. ... Well, maybe that's coz I have dirty windows, too ... After about a dozen chase attempts, he decided a little foraging down on the ground was in order, and gave up ... for a while.
