More Backyard Treasures





The beautiful cardinal is a vibrant red.  He’s known for the crest upon his head.
His heavy bill is surrounded by black.  Bugs, fruit, and seeds are a favorite snack.
A backyard favorite, high he rates.  He’s the state bird of seven states.


I really should clean my windows. :)

This is hanging directly in front of my garden window in my kitchen.
Her tail is almost touching the dirty window...THH!

OH my, he is like red velvet and the song they sing is lovely.

I too have a feeder hanging in front of the kitchen window over the sink, it has a frog and your a squirrel. I captured the other day a female Cardinal.

So thankful to the lord for giving us simple pleasures.

I love cardinals, they are one of my favorite birds. Their bright red is such a cheerful spot of color in the drabness of winter. I really like your bird feeder...neat!

I love your cardinal pictures. That's a good spot to hang the feeder so you have a good view of them. I need to do something like that.
You know if you clean those windows the birds won't be able to tell they are there and they might get hurt flying into them. That's why I keep mine dirty....lol

Well first I have to tell you how much I like that little feeder Marie, that is super cute.

Cardinal are such pretty birds. The female may not be as bright as the male but she is still eye catching. Unfortunately I never seen Cardinals in our area, I do miss them.

Happy Valentine's Day!
