Okay, how about a color other than blue?

After days of Great Blue Heron posts and then some Texas bluebonnets, how about we throw in some bright cardinal red...

He was picking at the new leaf growth on the birdfeeder tree.

Gorgeous! I saw one at our feeder today with his wifey -- such a cute and colorful pair. :)

Flora said...

What a beautiful bird! Our birds are having a hard time with all the snow we have! The geese are returning and I am thinking they are quite confused with this snow?!

I wish we had cardinals where I live in CA. They must be so pretty to watch in real life:)

The red sure is beautiful! I have never gotten a great shot of a cardinal and jealous when I see such nice shots. :)

Don't you just love them? I find it odd that don't sound different, I know when they are out there by their silly chirp. :-)

Such a pretty guy. Cardinals are our state bird and we have plenty of them here. We just love them and make sure we have food out where they like to find it. They also watch me for when I put kitchen trimmings in the compost bin so they can be first in line.

Andrew said...

A beautiful bird to see. Many thanks for sharing.

Louise said...

Isn't he a porky little thing? King of all he surveys. I love cardinals this time of year, telling everyone that they are so "fierce, fierce, fierce."

don said...

I wish you could talk one of those beauties into heading west to my area! We, sadly, don't have this gorgeous bird. You series shows them so well. Fine shooting!

Beautiful cardinal. The doggies and I are looking at those every day in our garden.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Beautiful, I love with that nice red color. The title of my Buddha to what I have taken the title of a poem by Dylan Thomas, poet Bob Dylan took his name.

Woody said...

Ah, I love cardinals. I have been trying all Spring to photograph some and only have one so far. He's very handsome.

Well done!

Martha Z said...

I don't know why these guys don't visit California, they sure are colorful.

Michaele said...

How come they get to be so pretty? That is just way too much color for one bird. Nice clear shots!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Add me to the list of Californians who would like to see a Cardinal in real life. I was just so excited to see what it commonly called the Desert Cardinal (its a weird name I cannot spell, let alone say) while in Big Bend Texas. I will have pictures of it in time. Thanks for these shots of the real thing.

Debbie said...

so beautiful...love the bird and the budding branches!!!

Dawn said...

Your color and blooms make me want to cry. I seriously am in need of these shots right now!
And that really is a redpoll in my post today? I had no idea what it was and was going to email you. Thanks:)

What a beautiful bird. I have seen them before when my daughter lived in Tennessee but I've never seen them here in Washington.

This is what I would call 'eye candy'.Beautiful.

Sailor said...

Yes ...I like different colors.

Millie said...

Very pretty! I do like the bright red.

Rain said...

Oh so beautiful!! Love the vibrant red--but also the spurts of yellow popping from the branches!! We need that so here now! But the 12 inches from yesterday is melting fast-we will see the spurts of spring soon! :)

Kathy said...

Loved the "blues" but red is always nice too!

Trisha said...

So bright! He's beautiful!

Randy said...

Bring on the colors! I so look forward to your next days post.

Janie2 said...

Me too. Never seen a real live Cardinal. This is sure a treat for me and many of your readers. My favorite bird to my yard and feeders is the Western Blue Bird.

SquirrelQueen said...

A wonderful dash of red! He is a very handsome fellow and seems to have enjoyed being the subject of your photos.

I am seriously jealous of the bright red birds you folks get in the US. I love these birds! When I was little, I did a needle point for my mom of a cardinal against a snowy backdrop. Can you send me one of these, Theresa? xoxo

Margaret said...

I was going to say magnificent and then I spied the blue heron below! Oh my, if off to take a look!
