Spiritual Red Bird

This red cardinal sat on my vehicle when I parked at a local store one Sunday morning. First he sat on my windshield wiper and peered through the glass at me. Next, he flew to the passenger side side view mirror and then to the driver's side view mirror still looking back at me. I thought he or she looked like they were searching for someone. This went on for at least 10 minutes because I sat in my car a little afraid to get out for fear that he'd sit on my head or something. Finally, he flew away and I exited my car and went shopping. When I came back to the car he was sitting on a vehicle parked next to mine. I later read that red cardinals symbolize a "visitor" from the spirit world and that it represents a relative that has passed on giving you a message that all is well or will be well. I was so touched and excited after reading this.
