Thanks for your comment! I think the Cardinal is one of the most beautiful birds, especially in winter when everything else is so drab.
Happy Shooting,
Dorothy

That is a great picture. Moved from the midwest to California, and very much miss the beautiful cardinals.

Thanks Phatkhat! I raised my kitchen window enough for the camera lens and stuffed bath towels around it to keep out the cold. It's a good spot for me to see them.

We've a load of cardinals and blue jays at our "feeder", too. And juncos, titmice, and woodpeckers. Nothing else to eat right now! I haven't had much luck photographing them, though. Your pic is lovely! And yes, just like Christmas cards!!

Oh boy! This is just awesome. I just love
cardinals, but we don't have any in Colorado,
so I love seeing them in photos. You really
hit the jackpot with this one! Beautiful,
Dorothy!

How well matched - 4 males, and 4 females! Wonder how many eggs will be in the nests?
