Red In The Snow

While I was watching the snow falling in yesterday's pic there were four male Cardinals flitting about in the trees and this one landed in the tree just beyond the light standard pole in yesterday's pic. The males seem to be intensely red right now so maybe they are gearing up for spring!

Beautiful!
There is something especially charming about a Cardinal in the snow!

Really fine bird! Annoying when these birds here are so colorless!

...red and white, a winning combination.

Amazing bird!
When I move to my new house I am putting in bird feeders.
Put sunflower or safflower seeds in your feeder. Black Sunflower seeds are a favorite of cardinals. ...

Stopping by for Saturday's Critters.

Quite lovely, and of course you wouldn't miss a red moment! Either did my mother. I have to laugh at how many red purses she owned!

He is most handsome. Lovely photo.

Perfect shot! We don't get cardinals here. I had to go down to Arizona one spring to see my first.

Linda said...

Pretty! I love seeing cardinals... except when they attack my car mirrors.

Looks like a piece of the tropics in the snow. What a jewel.

We have just one, since early winter. I think his partner either left or was killed (we found one female on the road, ded). Then, he was feeding the baby by himself. The young 'un has disappeared, too!

I see cardinals all the time up north, and I have begun seeing them more often down here.
