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

  14. 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.

  27. Beautiful cardinal! For some reason cardinals have stopped visit me or they come very late almost at night time. Enjoy yours, they're so colorful.
