Northern Cardinal

Growing up in Massachusetts, I saw Northern Cardinals and Blue Jays every day.  So going to Georgia and South Carolina was a chance to see my friends again.  Unfortunately, cardinals are shy little guys.  At least in the South.

The picture above is a male.  The female is substantially more subdued.

Sharon has some great pictures of cardinals that were eating up all the food before an impending snowstorm.  The picture titled “crasher cardinal” is the best because he appears to be plotting how to harm the chickadee.  In the picture below, the cardinal probably thought that I couldn’t see him.  But I could!

I can’t say that cardinals depend upon water, but I did see them around some lakes.  So I’ll leave you with a lovely picture of fog on the lake.
