Cardinal Christmas Capers
Photos of a Northern Cardinal and friends taken recently at Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary.
Red Beak in the Raised Bed
The female Northern Cardinal has taken a keen interest in my garden preparations this week.
Indoor and Outdoor Fireplaces
My table top electric “fire” and the flaming red Northern Cardinal just outside my window cheer me on this rainy New England day.
Snow and Seeds
White-throated Sparrows, Blue Jays, Cardinals and Juncos don’t seem to mind a hop on the crunchy snow, so long as an abundance of seeds fallen from the bird feeders is on offer.
What? MORE Snow?
The cardinal spreads the news: Yet another Winter Storm Warning for Massachusetts.
This cardinal at the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA delights in the action “on the ground” as well as in the treetops.
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.
This juvenile cardinal sometimes eyes me warily, but that hasn’t stopped him from enjoying the bird baths.
