Northern Cardinal Cheer!

DSC_4209

This pair of nesting Northern Cardinals is such a happy addition to the neighborhood!  I love watching both the strikingly red male and the light rusty-tan colored female flit around the trees here.  They are getting their nest in order with the hen carrying small leaves, twigs, and soft spider webs to line the nest.  I love hearing the male sing, too!  Quite cheery!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger photo.  Enjoy!

  1. that one of his head above the green grass – great ‘wow’ factor! 🙂

  2. Beautiful! Sometimes one will visit here, but not this year I guess.

    • Hi Montucky, I have only seen them Texas and to the East. Glad you have had Northern Cardinals visit your locality on occasion. Have a wonderful Tuesday tomorrow!

  3. Wonderful captures of the Cardinals. I agree with Theresa, the Cardinal in the grass is a cute shot! Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

    • Hi Eileen, Thanks! I like that particular picture. Stormy weather happening at the moment. I know we need that rain – even if we do not like the T storms which often happen here in Summer. Have a great day!
