My husband passed away in February and shortly after his death, my little red cardinal friend began to stop by the house every morning. I explained to my 10-year old son that he was a visitor from Heaven and that he will be there whenever he needed him. I saw the little redbird every day for quite a while. One day a Baltimore Oriole appeared and after that, I was no longer seeing the red cardinal. My son however, continued to see the vibrant redbird every single day. I researched the spiritual symbolism of Baltimore Orioles and discovered they are a sign representing that even though you are going through the hardest part of your life — the worst is over. I am a firm believer that birds speak to us in ways that no one else can!
