King Cardinal

How about a photo post to celebrate today’s almost-spring snowstorm, which is expected to bring up to a foot of new snow?

Cardinal in winter maleBut there’s one visitor that always gets my attention fast. That is the cardinal, or, as I’ve begun calling him, “King.” I suppose he’s just one, although perhaps several male cardinals visit. But, since I only see one at a time, I assume King is a single bird.

  1. Perhaps you got your love of birds from Grandpa Schulte. Until the fire, he had a large wonderful Aubudon Bird Book. Seems like there was a storage container under our living room couch, where the book reposed. I, too, love birds.

  2. I enjoyed this post, Susan. And I agree that King is an attractive addition to a snowy scene.
