Isn't she pretty. On the snow too, it looks like. We don't have cardinals in our area although I read recently that some have been spotted in Washington. Maybe they'll move into Portland in the next few years.

oh  thank you so much for sharing this pic.  My grandmother died two years ago from ovarian cancer.  She loved cardinals soo much and my 4 year old thinks she is still alive in every female cardinal she sees.  I copied this picture for her and she had to call everyone (meaning my mom and dad) and tell them she had a picture of her Am Am   thank you again.  This really brightened up my day.

I enjoy the cardinals that come around & like to put out sunflower seeds in the feeder for them.

She is definitely a female. Her color shows this. The male usually is a much brighter red. I feel like I want to put her in a sheltered place. It is so cold. LOL


I do that with the ones around my neighborhood. I noticed a pair male/female and some youngsters too. It seems they stay here year round.

I saw the female yesterday.   It had been a while since she was around so of course the thought she died had occured to me.  I am surprised I don't see more dead "old" birds lying around...like 100's :-((((  Sad part of life.

I filled the feeder up & the squirrels ate most of it...so am waiting before I fill it up again.  Need to figure out where to move it to so it is for the birds mostly...lol!

I have that problem too. The squirrels eat most of the bird food. It's amazing how acrobatic they can get in order to reach it! This is such a pretty picture. I love all the different types of birds. :)
