Cardinal couples are interesting to watch. The male has some gorgeous red but for me the female is my favorite. So many different shades of color with the touch of red.

They're so pretty and they sound so sweet. Why do they always try to hide from me? *sniff*

Hi Tex, A very neat post that leaves me smiling. Thanks! :-)

Marit Sønstebø said...

Very charming!

Rose said...

I do think they have a beauty all their own! (Looks like you need to fill up that feeder:)

A Quiet Corner said...

Nothing like a bath after dinner or is it before??...:)JP

Stephanie said...

Cute on the spa day for the male Cardinal. Great images!

RedPat said...

They are such wonderful birds to see flitting around! Great shots, Tex!

Maggid said...

Oh, now that's fun.

She's really pretty - around here, they are nice, but seem kinda drab . . . maybe it's because we generally see them together and he is so noticeable?

probably it's your camera skill that super makes her stand out . .

Sally said...

Both are beautiful. :)

xoxo

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

One of the very few female birds that look really nice on their own.

Bas said...

geweldig wat is hij mooi.

Phil Slade said...

She's rather good looking in a subtle sort of way. Not nearly so gaudy as a male except for her bright red bill.

Mama Zen said...

She's a beauty!

Andrew Fulton said...

Beautiful xx

Mersad said...

What a wonderful looking bird. Your photos are really great.

Such a cute bird!! A little beauty!

Robin Lamb said...

T, just goes to show that you don't have to be all red to be pretty!

Revrunner said...

Probably deserved it after a long hard day at the feeder. :-)

magnoliasntea said...

Beautiful cardinal photos! It's so hot the boss are wearing out my birdbath.

Red said...

This one's a little shy and stays covered in the leaves.

RLUPhoto said...

Great pictures and such a cute idea that he is having a spa day. I love cardinals. They remind me of my Grandmother. They were her favorite bird. :-)

Felicia said...

she is so very pretty and graceful.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

The females' beauty is a bit understated, but they're still beautiful. Love the red crest. Mr. C doesn't look so good when he's wet.

Jeanne said...

What fun! Pa spa day... Cute.

Bethany Carson said...

They both are beautiful birds! Enjoyed your photos!

Stephanie Faris said...

Awesome pictures! My husband just said to me, "Why did you put sunflower seeds in the birdfeeder? You're supposed to put birdseed." I was too lazy to go get the package to show him that it IS for birds. I guess we're city people at heart.

Munir said...

Oh my God. Talk about colour coordination.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

A perfect family day without the kids! :-)

Gert said...

What a great post! I didn't see that one coming...lol Glad Papa C was enjoying his Father's Day!!

Weekend-Windup said...

Mr.C Looks beautiful. I love the color of her beak and the flower in the head...

Ratty said...

I love cardinals. After I saw my first male cardinal it took me several years to see a female cardinal.

Rita said...

She is a charmer! :)

Ms. A said...

I actually had a cardinal the other day and I was shocked! My shots (through a dirty window) didn't come out nearly as nice as yours.

SweetMarie said...

Pa Spa Day! Love it! this is a wonderful post! your female cardinal is so pretty and she knows it. :)
I can't believe I missed posting today! Hope you fur babies were good to their dad! :)

Lynne said...

So pretty . . . (and handsome.).
It almost seems like their color markings haven't fully blushed out yet so beautuful.
And their beek is very prominent in color . . .
Nice photo grouping . . . very . . .

Lynne said...

My spelling should have been BEAK . . .

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

She is so pretty ... A little more subtle than her preening hubby ;))

Wayne said...

If figures, she's gathering food and he's lounging in the pool.

Love the uniqueness of Cardinals!

Marie C said...

Such a darling post! Just loved it! Great pictures of the two.

I like the coloration of the females just as much as the males! Very nice!

Mrs. C has beautiful coloring also though much more subtle then Mr. C!

Lowcarb team member said...

Beautiful colours, lovely to see.

All the best Jan

Jeevan said...

Very sweet girl! Like all her poses

Helma said...

I'm really a bit jealous of these pictures of the cardinal. In the Netherlands we do not have this and they are so beautiful!

pattisjarrett said...

Pa Spa Day! LOL He probably earned it.

edenhills said...

They might not be as flashy as the males, but they are still pretty birds.
