It's a new day. . . . . . . .




She greeted me in the morning, soft feathered and I think quite young, 
her tail feathers especially beautiful - Ms. Northern Cardinal. 

Enjoying the brilliant October sunshine from her perch on the
 shepherd's hook where the feeder hangs beneath the fig tree.
She stayed quite a while seeming to enjoy the warmth.

She and her family are non-migrators so will be spending the 
winter months here. They gather in small flocks of up to 
twenty birds and will definitely be looking for seed, insects
and fruits/berries in the garden no matter what the weather.

  1. Oh, isn't she a beauty, and as you say quite young looking. What a sweetie. And beautifully photographed, as always Mary.

    1. Thank you dear Patricia.
      I always think of you when I see a lovely cardinal. This one I would love to hold in my hand - a few ounces of beauty!

    1. Oh joy! You are home. . . . . . . I'm so, so happy to know this Gina!
      Can't wait - but will try to be patient as I know what jet lag is like - to hear all about your trip.
      Love to you both.
      Mary -
