Cardinalis cardinalis

My contribution to Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #150. And I'm also linking to Anni's I'd Rather B' Birdin.

We got to West Virginia late yesterday afternoon and the local birds haven't found out there's food on the porch again (yet). Fortunately, Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal were strutting their stuff in the backyard in D.C. yesterday.



Update: They're here!

Love the cardinals and they are frequent visitors to our feeders. I'm visiting from Saturday's Critters.

Love the Cardinals! So bright and cheerful!
Our Summer birds are gone, and our Winter birds have not arrived yet, so Cardinals are the only birds I am seeing at our feeders right now.
Have a great week-end!

Your birds didn't waste much time in refinding the goodies on offer. Birds are smarter than some humans don't you think?

We birders appreciate your participation this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin'!!! Thanks for sharing this!!! Cardinals are my all time favorite bird [I used to marvel at them even when I was a little pipsqueak of a girl]

..........oh, and I agree with Phil above----birds are smarter than some humans.

Mr & Mrs Cardinals are a pretty cute pair. Also so is the Nuthatch! It is interesting to watch them. Have a good day!

Those are some glorious pictures. Did you use an improvised blind? The cardinals are gorgeous, but my fave is the nuthatch, they are such comical little birds.
