Not looking quite the pretty male cardinal yet. My juveniles are growing up but still looking a bit motley
OK, I did say that I was going to stalk my cardinal til I got a picture that wasn’t taken from behind a window 🙂 After staying outside for 2 hours every day this week, he finally got comfortable enough to hang around for a while. Tomorrow I’m going to be doing some gardening, so preparing you in advance … you’ll probably see pansies 🙂
OK, so on the chance that this is the best I’ll get (still going to try) I’m going to post. Woke up this morning to see my cardinal strutting about on the ground. As soon as I rolled out of bed – off he took. But I grabbed the camera anyhow on my way to the coffee pot. Then I saw him at the feeder. These aren’t crystal clear as they are taken through a window (and I’m not the best housekeeper so my glass is not as clear as – well – glass). But this is my best so far – so we have the one single pic as the best then I just threw the other 4 (a little blurrier) together into a collage).
