thumbup rose rose

What a happy ending at sisters house tonite.. We were setting an watching the birds and rabbits eat and fight in her yard.. She had a thistle bag and finches all around and 3 other types of bird ,, Brown.. Just as we were about to leave, in flew the beautiful red Cardinal.. That was the closest I ever seen one.. I didnt get the photo , but I did get the bunny one, and finches..Not close.

Wah......Thorn entertained us this winter with the cardinals.
Now I seen one. thanks thorn

Indeed they are.....Red and red can be.........I was shocked to see it arrive as I was leaving.. they are much larger than the others......

No wonder they are on all winter photos.......

That made me think of how much I take for granted....
There are a lot of Cardinals in my yard all the time.
(Duh! Cardinals are the state bird of Kentucky!)

When I was at Bill's I saw so many birds there that we don't have here.


OH you lucky person.....
It would be very nice if you go photos of a whole bunch of them.

I love them..My aunt gave me a statue when I was very young, of one.. That started that ......

I would think the birds are all different on the west coast.......I been as far as Colorado, and was too busy with the snow capped mountains to see birds.

Hope you had lots of memorie from Bills.........
He must be a nice fellow.

Do you let yours loose in the kitchen? She does at times.. Mercy the mess it makes on the floor.. Fortunately it is tile.

This same lady lives in a log cabin home and is a Quilter and antique collector.
And boring as heck.. ha ha

I used to feed all my "tweety" friends year round. But this year we were at the point where all I was feeding was many many common crackles and 4 or 5 squirrels. The crackles even managed to drive away my 2 pairs of cardinals.
and then the sparrows were taking over my thistle feeder. so we took down the "wild bird feed" feeder. Squirrels & crackles left--and glad to say so did the sparrows. Now all that comes around is the indigo bunting pair, the gold finches, houes finches, some brown w/ black dashes on it thing I have not identified yet (feeds at my hummingbird feeder) and a few doves. I like this better.

Depending on the weather, I will put my wild bird feed feeder back up sometime in the winter. ;)
