A Keen Observer

This Northern Cardinal, high above me on his windy perch, spotted me photographing him. With feathers rustling in the wind, his watchful eye followed me attentively. With a sudden flash of brilliant red, he swooped down to command the bird feeders, constantly checking out the action around him. It wasn’t until he was at ground level that he seemed curiously unconcerned with the small mammals hunting for seeds with him.

  1. Beautiful Cardinal! I have a family of cardinals living in a tree behind my house. They are the only bird that I can identify their chirp. I love to watch them! Your picture with the Cardinal, ground squirrel and squirrel was wonderful!
