The Cardinal

This cardinal had a feast at the feeder one day. The cardinals seem to come in spells. They'll show up and then won't come back for several days.

They are such pretty birds. I've been missing your blog, not sure how I've been missing it, but clicked on one of your comments (in another blog) to get here. Nice catching up. You take great photos!

What beautiful colors

Andrea said...

Pretty cardinal but I still catch myself scrolling down to see that dog climbing the tree. I cannot quit laughing. That was a great capture and I think one of your funniest pictures yet.

I have never seen one in person but then I don't have a bird feeder either.

Grat shots of the Cardinals.

Lucky them, eating from your feeder. :)

Great colours and as usual good captures. Do you have a camera permanently focused on the plate?

These are very nice shots of the cardinals at your feeding station. Cardinals are almost always the first to eat in the morning and the last to eat just before it gets dark.

Birds are like men; the way to their heart is through their stomach!

We have plenty of cardinals here in Pa. Maybe they are waiting for the weather to get colder before venturing down your way.

He loves the sunflower seeds and they invite him to return.

Your pictures are great Dot.
Well done. I have some practising to do, I can see that. The cardinal is so colourful, it is a male isn't it. We seldom see them here, but I've been told the females are not as red.

This is a G R E A T shot of such a small bird Dot! I tried this several times and the result was so lousy, so you did this very well. I like it very much:)

Come and see my blog, I posted for a change a HUGH (international) 'my tree':), see if you like this kind?

Greetings JoAnn

Sister--Three said...

Dot, I changed my post because of what you said. The site the child had printed off was call nazarite or something like that. very distrubing indeed.

I was wrong on the Church's name too...was not the Witnesses.

Nancy said...

The cardinal is so pretty.Looks as if the bird is posing for you.Great shots!

Sandy Carlson said...

These are wonderful shots. This is a beautiful bird. This past spring a couple graced our view, and it was wonderful. The female was more red than I would have thought possible. This fellow in your photo is very handsome. A pin up for cardinals!

Sharon said...

Wow, that is just beautiful!

I have never seen a cardinal in my area. You must have been very patient waiting and watching. I like how you put the 4 photos onto 1 image.

I think I've seen a cardinal here maybe twice. And always at the transition area from woods to field. They flit around too much to get a good zoom focus. I never knew their beaks were red, too! How cool!
