Denise, such a beautiful bird, and it even looks like Christmas! From Illinois, it is the state bird, and my granddaughters love the St. L Cardinals!

How lovely! Cardinals are always so pretty.

Debbie said...

they are so easy to love!! that first shot is perfect and would be impossible to get if all the leaves had not fallen!!

it's one of my favorite things about winter, unobstructed bird views!!!!

Cranberry Morning said...

What beautiful shots! The cardinal has always been my favorite. Such a spot of bright red to cheer up our solid white landscape in the winter time.

Stunning critters -- love those cardinals, but that are so skittish.

Ginny said...

He is splendid! I hope there is a Mrs. somewhere!

How beautiful indeed, my favorite as well, but they sure don't hang around long. In and out, quickly! Yours looks as if you're getting your own special song today!

Lovely shots, Denise. Would you mind telling the cardinal that the menu is pretty good in my UK garden. 24 hour service and baths available 24 hours.

Wow, lovely shots of the cardinals. I wish I could see them on my deck eating seeds, but I like seeing yours since they don't live here.
