    Mr. Cardinal doesn’t stay long at our feeders. He eats and runs. Mrs. Cardinal is shy too. I have to be on the ball to catch them with the camera. Or lucky.
    You got some great photos. Aren’t they a beautiful bright spot against the snow?
    We got a bit more snow overnight so the trees are pretty again this morning and the snowbanks are huge! I see you got some snow too. Old Man Winter is very busy this year.
    Hope you have a restful weekend :hug:

    Beautiful…I love our redbirds too.

    Right now I am having hundreds of Robins in my yard! I welcome them though because they get in my rose beds, scratch around and eat all the nasty bugs…hahahahaha
    I wait until the robins come and do their thing before getting out there and putting new mulch down each year. I made the mistake one year of putting mulch down early and the robins scratched it all out…LOL

    While I love the colorful cardinals, I’m getting really anxious to spot more robins. We’ve seen a rare few, can’t wait til they’re running all over the lawn, which is now covered once again in snow!

    Absolutely Gorgeous! You are so lucky to live in a place that has these beautiful birds. Our bluebirds are showing up here for spring, and we see an occasional oriole, but they don’t compare to your cardinal for color, especially on that white background.
    What a wonderful way to spend a winter’s day!

    Just beautiful. Our cardinals, too, have been a bright spot in a what has seemed to be an endless, dreary winter.

    We have a bird like this that likes our tree in the back yard. It is such a bright color, it stands out like a neon sign. We watch this bird as it melds in with the other birds and doesn’t he know he is such a beautiful color??

    I love the cardinals. They seem so much brighter in the winter. Probably the contrast with the snow. Gorgeous photos.

    thanks for sharing your redbirds. One of my goals is to someday see a redbird – here on the west coast of Canada, there are none. Lots of finches, jays, flickers, but no redbirds. And red is my favorite color…….sigh….someday……………

    I love the redbird! I’ll see one on the tree branch outside my living room window once in awhile.It’s true they dont seem to hang aground long.

    Did you see the female nearby? I was taking pictures of a male cardinal a month or so ago, and it wasn’t until I zoomed in on the photos that I realized the female was right there, a little behind the male. She was hard to see because she matched the bushes so well! I’ve heard that they mate for life, and that they always come back to the same nesting spot. I don’t know how true it is, but we always have a nesting pair in our yard, which is very cool!

    I want a Cardinal or two(twenty) here too! :hissyfit: LOL They have been spotted in the Southend on occasion, but not here. I’ve spent months adding their favorite food…to no avail. Oh well…I did get an Indigo Blue for a couple of days :happyfeet: A very rare sighting for this neck of the woods.

    Gorgeous photos. My mother would have loved them, and if she were still with us I would have wheeled her to the computer so she could see your beautiful work. She loved birds, but cardinals above all others. Thank you for the bright spot in the snow!!!

    Theres no place like home , theres no place like home. I’m missing the redbirds while stationed here in Korea. I wanne go home to Ft. Leonard Wood, Mo. I have Magpies, Greater Tits(which look like and sound like chickadees) and Tree sparrows. The birds here look very much like ones in America, but with a twist. But there are no cardinals.sigh….

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
