Cardinals

The one (and only) good thing about snow is the great photo opportunity it gave me this week. I scattered some bird seed about in the fresh snow and the birds immediately flocked to the front yard with this cardinal cooperating with me capturing his picture. I haven't been the best at keeping feed out in the front yard for the birds this winter. My husband realized the other day that our one lonely chicken sure was eating a lot of feed and then I pointed out the large assortment of birds who congregated in the trees around the pen and subsequently descended upon the fresh scratch as soon as he left the area. It was amazing how fast the birds flocked to the front yard when I filled up their feeder and scattered about fresh grains in the snow.






I hope you are having a wonderful week and staying warm! I know that I'm looking foward to some warmer temperatures this weekend as I've had all the cold I can stand for a while.

  5. Cardinals have always been one of my favorite birds. they are so pretty and your pictures are awesome.
    If you want I can send you the link to the directions for making that tea bag medallion I did on the card. I'm pretty sure it had pictures showing all the folds. Let me know

  8. Beautiful photos! One of the things I love most about winter in Missouri is getting to see cardinals in the snow. After 16 years, it still always feels like such a treat. :)
