Dear Bird Correspondent

Welcome to the latest installment of "Dear Bird Correspondent." In today's entry, the bird correspondent replies to a previously posed query. She writes: "I'm afraid Miss Young's question is outside the purview of the bird correspondent, as it seems to pertain to strange human behavior rather than anything specifically avian. I will say that, while I've seen cardinals do some unlikely things, like feed goldfish in a backyard pond, I'm doubtful that any of them would spend any significant time hanging out on the antlers of a live deer." The bird correspondent was kind enough to include a photo of a cardinal feeding a goldfish, which we attach here for your reflection.
