Let's Hear it for The Boys...

I see Cardinals year round, but as the temperatures drop outside, 
I see a lot more at my feeders and hanging around in the trees.



Now that everyone's favorite tree is bare of leave's,
the Cardinal's have decided to switch things up and hang out in this Evergreen,
much further from the window.
I prefer the tree - thank you very much - 
I have been waiting all Summer for it to be bare of leaves,
making snapping these images a breeze.
But - looking on the bright side, this falls into my "new perspective" category. 
You remember - the challenge I use when the birds are hanging around in the tops of the trees.
This Evergreen is a tangled mess, 
so I have a new challenge, just getting a picture.

I am happy to welcome all this red in the back yard, it goes nicely with all my Christmas decor.

  4. Yes, I look forward to the leaves dropping so that I can see the birds more easily. Your cardinals look beautiful, we don't get them over here.

  6. Such a lovely array of colors in these photos--the bright red, the blues, the greens. Very festive! I think the cardinals want to give you a photography challenge. :-)

  8. Cardinals are always a welcome sight, Debbie and we get more this time of the year too. Of course, I love evergreens...all sorts of them and they do offer great cover for the birds in the colder temps!...:)JP
