Mr and Mrs Cardinal (Or maybe Mr and immature Cardinal)
I have tried all summer long to get some photos of the cardinals. They are so flitty it has been hard to get any decent ones. Yesterday was my lucky day. I had put out a few scoops of sunflower seeds and peanuts under the feeders and around some of the trees. Then I sat and waited. It wasn't long before the male showed up.
He ate himself for a minute or so and then started to check things out.
I think another bird was up in the bird bath in this photo.
The female/baby then flew down and started eating too.
He was searching for the perfect morsel to give to the female/baby.
I guess he spotted the perfect seed/bug for her.
Here you go! I was very pleased to get this shot. My first ever. I often think of my Dad when I am taking bird photos. Birding was something we both loved.
Could not resist one more photo of Butterscotch. She was enjoying all the extra peanuts too.
Lovely cool, dry day today. I got an email about the Matzoh Meal. It may be here on Friday! YUM! I can't wait.
