A Fan Favorite

This pretty young female cardinal has been hanging around the yard,

this is her favorite tree.
Isn't that cute, that she has a favorite tree!!

Her tail is almost always fanned out.

I think this is a young bird, because her beak isn't orange,
I'm not sure why I think that!!

She's so cute and fluffy,

it's difficult to see how tiny she is but she is t.i.n.y.

and poor baby, she always looks so hot,
I wish she would find the bird bath!!

In my heart, I am linking to World Bird Wednesday!!

    For me, the cardinal is a curious and perhaps someone is calling. Lovely pictures. Yours.

  7. Reminds me of "Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul. And sings the tunes without the words and never stops at all." Your bird made me smile.

  15. She is beautiful. She will find the bird bath all in due time. Maybe she doesn't feel she needs a bath yet. Her makeup may come off.

  19. She's very cute! I've been putting the sprinkler on in the yard for the birds--gees, they are soooo hot. It's fun to watch them come and cool off, take a drink or a bath, and just sit under the water. I've been doing this nearly every day for them. I think they need the water.

  26. My dear friend ... today is my late beloved Dad's birthday. How I miss him!!! I frankly don't feel up for much, but "oh its my purple friend let me check her out at least, she usually has something" - how you have blessed me! My Dad used to feed the birds. My Dad used to call them "boids" ;) as in "I'm going out now to feed my boids, they're waitin' on me" -- and then he would stand there, very still, and whistle to them in the same pitch they used. I don't know how close his birds got - he used to say he would do so to keep his car clean, lol! When I first moved to Virginia and he saw that a cardinal was the state bird, he was very excited - this, my dear friend, was one of his favorite "boids" <3
