Elenka has started an animal challenge. You can read her post here Animal Challenge If they could talk, they would tell us a lot of stories. If they could talk every day, they would tell us how much they love us, Elenka says.
Captured this beautiful female cardinal in my deck feeder. Remember the male cardinal is a bright red bird. The female is a little more subdued but she has pretty features as well. Her beak, crown and tail are red. Her wings are a mixture of browns and reds.
Hopefully you can see the snow on her face. She dug past the snow in the feeder to find the treasured sunflower seeds. Entertaining to watch. Their favorite food are the sunflower seeds and the occasional peanut. I think if the cardinal could talk she would say, “would you please get this snow out of my way so I can eat my seeds”. The snow will be gone soon. The birds will be happy.
