Cardinal



I get quite a few cardinals at my feeder. But as far as I'm concerned, they're always welcome!

PS: Today is the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. You may remember my post about some mini-walls I saw in a German shopping center while I was there. In fact they weren't walls at all, but giant dominos that were lined up and toppled today in celebration. What a neat idea!

They are so much fun to watch. Definitely my favorite.

ineke: Cardinals are actually quite common here. It's funny that they seem so exotic to outsiders.

This is really an excellent shot...he's looking right at the camera!

We get a lot of cardinals, too, at certain times, but I haven't ever gotten this good a shot.

I'll have to get a spy camera like you!

Jim K.: If they bring cold weather, it should be cold here year round! These guys are always at my feeder, but I do enjoy them.

Lois said...

brilliant color, i love cardinals!

and to your question, no i didn't get my tub from an antique dealer. (probably should've) =) i ordered it from 'vintage tub and bath' online. it's a cast iron reproduction made like the old ones - and was made in china. it's beautiful though, and i'll be posting a photo in the next day or so! =)

These kind of photos are getting better and better. As you can see I have to content myself with sparrows...

He is so handsome!

That's so cool about the art dominoes! Our newspapers just showed aerial views and other long-distance photos, and it's fantastic to know that each piece was actually decorated.

Cardinals remain one of my favorite birds! What a glorious pose he gave you!

I have never seen or heard about "the Cardinal" as a bird. But it looks very pretty, and I learned something new!
Anyway, Germany have big celebrations going on, and I just heard that it is the country we in Norway, do most trade-buisness with.
