Cardinals rule

Cardinals have always been one of my favorite birds. I love their bright red color. They normally don't sit long enough for me to get any pictures of them though. Now that the bird feeder is closer to the house I've had better luck.
The one day when it was raining I happened to catch one having his lunch

I have a family of them coming in the afternoon. It is fun to watch them.

Awesome photo - but why do these birds look so angry?

Sheryl Hastings said...

You sure did capture great pictures of the birdies! Love them. Duke is looking very handsome below as well.

That's a wet bird! Great photos of him though! Pretty cool that he sat there so long!

Donna said...

Wonderful photos! I love those birds too.

These are great shots! I like the colours on him. We don't have birds like that over here, only those small little ones that almost blend in with the rest of the garden.
