August 30 Cardinal

August 30 Cardinal, originally uploaded by NedraI.

I was sitting on the deck this morning enjoying the sunshine and watching the usual birds at the feeders while working on my school related "to do" list. I had my camera next to me and I was so glad that I did. I've been trying to get a picture of a cardinal for a long time but they are very camera shy around here. Today about four of them flew through the yard. This one landed in a near by tree and then flew out to the garden gate. While it sat there a male flew in and joined it. It appeared that the male was feeding this female but it was really difficult to tell. This one stayed on the gate and the male flew back and forth several times. Unfortunately the pictures of them feeding are all blurry. But I am happy that I finally have a shot of a cardinal even if it was from a distance and I had to crop it!

  1. Hooray! I too have been working to get a Cardinal photo. Yours don't seem to be as intensely colored as the ones in the south. I will redouble my efforts.
