Mrs. Cardinal

With the snow we had Sunday, I could no longer resist putting out bird food.  I had not seen any cowbirds in a few days, though I did see starlings.
  I am not even sure I got back in the house before the birds were out there. 

Luckily, I have only seen a couple of cowbirds, and the feeder still had food in it this evening.  I think maybe now I can continue to put feed them.  I don't mind feeding a few starlings and cowbirds, but I don't want to put out the birdseed and them get it all. 

We always I spread a some seeds for the squirrels...there are only a couple that regularly. come unless it gets real bad.  And I don't even mind then.  The little songbirds do not seem to be bothered by them.

Isn't she lovely, all puffed up against the cold? She doesn't need that pretty red coat!

These are lovely, so pretty at any time but the snow makes them stand out more. Great shots Rose :). To answer your question about poetry. I love to read it all, but just like a favorite song, I have favorite poems and I do love discovering new ones that 'speak to me'. :)

I wish our starlings would leave. They swoop in and gobble up all the bird seed they can.
The Mrs. is cute with the snow around her beak!

The female cardinal is often under-rated as it is a real beauty with its subtle color scheme.

She posed for you :)) We have been getting blue jays and they are so piggy when they eat.
