Cardinal

Around 7:30 pm this cardinal and a female came to my bird feeder. He kept flitting around so I was able to capture different poses. Here's one of the photos I really liked from his shoot. I might share another one for Wild Bird Wednesday so don't forget to come back and see what other poses mr. cardinal shared...

Besides a male and female cardinal being at my bird feeder last night there was a mockingbird, red winged blackbird, mourning dove and two different sparrows. Yesterday morning I woke to find four goldfinches and three mourning doves at the back feeder. I think the mourning doves are a mother and her two babies.

The Cardinal looks sort of lonely out on that wire. You have lots of birds coming to your garden now.

wonderful capture. you seem pretty good at identifying birds, as for me, the only bird I can identify is a magpie and that's all I seem to see around here.

have a great day.

A wonderful...beautiful photo. I have several cardinal pairs at my feeders but they are not posing for me as this one seems to do for you.

How cool to have the Cardinal land on the fence. He certainly makes for a bright spot of color there.
