You are all probably getting sick of my cardinal pics, but I have not been getting out with my camera much lately.  This is a pair of mature cardinals…you can tell by their color…immature cardinals are brown. I finally captured two together, I have been trying to do this for years!  Needlas to say I am quite happy!

I think the male cardinal thinks it’s the females duty to go look for the food…that’s not how it works in my household!  Ha!

Duty

Last night we had our first blizzard of the year….8.6″ of snow and 50mph winds.  Not the most snow we ever had but combined with the winds it made travel quite hazardous.  Today everything was shut down and tons of households were without electricity.  Luckily our electricity went out last night and was back on by morning.  I stayed cozy and warm and didn’t leave the house….it felt really good!

Today we had our first snowfall of the year…it didn’t amount to much but it was beautiful while it lasted.  I think the snow put my squirrel friend in a bad mood, he looked rather annoyed at me, I think he preferred to eat in private!

On these 104 degree days even the squirrels need some extra liquids!

This adolescent dove had taken up camp in my feeder.  He has been eating like a growing dove and when he gets tired eating he takes a nap right in the feeder.  We are beginning to think he is destined to be the Guard of the feeder.
