Cardinal Portrait


"Our" male Cardinal in late afternoon light as he perched near the feeder, waiting his turn. His feathers are beautiful and fresh after his end of breeding season molt. He has raised two broods. Now he can relax and just focus on enduring the winter.

What an amazing northern cardinal! I do miss seeing these birds; they don't make it so far as Utah, but I look forward to heading back east - in the meantime, thanks for helping me get my feathered fix!
