Feathered friends...


At first I thought these were mocking birds...
but I don't think they are...

what are they????


look closely and you can see one in the tree...
they blend in really well

they seem to love the berries also...


a male cardinal...there are usually 2 together and a female...
this time he was alone...


he was busy going from one place to another...


the wind was blowing his top feathers....

he was such a pretty fellow....

my Nana always told me if you see a cardinal you will have good luck..
so everytime I see one....I feel lucky....

Hi, Deb, the cardinals here are singing to stake their territories. I have even seen a couple!!
And I was browsing etsy and saw these - thought of you - http://www.etsy.com/listing/63042883/dots-ladybug-resin-earrings?ref=cat3_gallery_1

Those birds look like mocking birds to me...they are just like the mocking birds we have here. Those cardinal pictures are great! Hugs

I hates to argue with your Nana but... We have lots of cardinal sightings around here. If that were true, I'd have lots and lots and lots of good luck.

But I have more snow, instead.

I feel lucky when I see a cardinal just because they're so beautiful!
