You do so good getting bird photos; I wish I had the patience and set up to do that!
Oh, I *FINALLY* saw two robins in the yard this morning! At dusk the other evening I thouhgt I saw the shillouette of one in the tree, but I now have visual confirmation!
And I hope Spring is really, slowly and gently coming and not pulling an Indiana special..... >:\

XXOO!!

What is this? A female Evening Grosbeak? It's beak seems too bright for that. You've got me stumped on this one if it isn't.

Jan, this bird is a young female cardinal. The bright, beautiful red male was very close to her. I took pictures of him, too, but they didn't come out crisp and clear. I will try again another time. I don't see them too often.

She has a very sweet face, doesn't she? :) I have a very loyal male and female that live in the woods and swoop over to our bird feeder. I will try and get pics, but you are much better at it than I am! Happy weekend, Audrey! xox Pam

it's wonderful to hear the birds singing and seeing them all come back to the feeders!

Aha a young female up and about unchaperoned?

Audrey, thank you for your kind comments. You are so sweet to me. Thank you.

Since there are more people I have to give the awarfs I will have to draw more atc. I will post my email adress on my profile as soon as I find a desk. I a deskless. Hahah!

I dearly love Cardinals! We have flocks of them year round feeding on the ground and at the feeders.

Is the new tree budding yet? Should really grow this year.

Great photo, I love cardinals even if I never get to see them in person. They just don't live in Oregon. I have seen one once while visiting my aunt in Nebraska and it was exciting.
