Garden Guest: Female Cardinal

The north side of our front yard is a certified  National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat.  Really!  We have a certificate!  You can do the same by providing food, water, cover and places for wildlife to raise their young.  It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit.  I have a series of posts to show you our Garden Guests.

If you would like to see more, please hop
 over to my Garden Page     



This female cardinal seems to be peeking under the branch!




Isn't she pretty?  These photos were taken on a cold morning with a dusting of snow on the ground.




On shots like these, I always wonder if they are watching me.



What's happening in your back yard?

  5. Gorgeous. The cardinal is my all time favorite bird! And the female is just as stunning as the male in my opinion with her silver gown studded in ruby red!!

  12. I love your pictures. We have 2 birds feeders at our house and I love watching the birds. We have a pair of cardinals that comes to the one bird feeder and we seem to see the female cardinal a lot more than the male. Sharing.
