Backyard Nature Moment!

I leave my window slightly open so I can hear the cardinal’s sweet song. It gives my day a touch of heaven and brings me closer to my angelic parents.  Cardinals have special meaning to many people.

The Northern Cardinal

The male is a vibrant red, mid-sized songbird. The female is a brownish – dull red. The male behaves territorially, marking out his territory with song. In summer, their sweet whistles are one of the first sounds of the morning. In winter, they are breathtaking in winter’s snowy backyards.

  I love nature and hope you enjoy these photos! Today as the female took a bath the male protected her. I was able to capture the moment to share with you.
