Cardinal feeding

This is another one of my daughter's pictures.

I really need to get an online storage account so I don't need to shrink them so much.

AWWW That is so sweet. I had a couple in my yard where the male fed the female.

This was taken about a week ago so he is probably feeding his fledgeling.
Rachel told me that she took it through the patio window.
I never could get good shots that way.

Thanks for the info. i didn't know the bill color changed.

She should have a really red bill as many times as she's run into my patio door fighting her reflection!

I put stickers up and plants in front of it to discourage her but she would do it anyway, over and over , every 10-15 minutes. I finally had to move the feeder 20 feet away from the deck so she wouldn't notice herself.

Excellent picture! Your dd did a fine job! Cardinals are a fav to watch, they are such neat birds. I have one male that has been after himself at the spare room window for 6 weeks I think. Every day, all day! I'm surprised he has a beak left!

Awww, what a great picture!! I agree that this is Mr. and Mrs. The males feed the females during mating season. Wish I could be that lucky! :lol:
