Do you Love Birds?!

Over the last few weeks we have had an over abundance of birds at our house!! Every time I look out of my kitchen window I am baffled at how many birds are out there!! Cardinals is what I have and they are SO gorgeous!! We keep filling the bird feeder now and they will have it gone within 2 days!! It amazes me the vast difference between the males and females!! With the blah winter color around here the females literally blend into the scenery!! I actually have to look carefully to see them all, I would guess at any given time I have had as many as 25 male and females out there!!




They are everywhere!!



Love the boldness of the males!!







Can you see the camouflaged females in the barren bush?!?!



The females are much more muted in color, but still pretty!!

  4. Beauties! I could watch the birds all day. I used to have canaries and finches. Love having them in the house and hearing them sing.

  5. We don't have red cardinals around here. I think they are so neat looking! You got some nice shots of them. Paint Girl has bird feeders and some spring day I'm going to sit there and try to get some pictures! Usually they are too shy and I'm too impatient, LOL! :)

  6. I love cardinals too - but we don't get many birds here (too many dogs & cats)... The picture "I Spy" with the female cardinals is absolutely wonderful!.... Glad to have you back in the blogging world!
