This cardinal pair was in my backyard during the rain yesterday afternoon.
For all the world, it looked like they were dancing in the rain.
I tried to get a better photo of papa Cardinal.
This one was not technically in my backyard, but on the neighbor's
house, singing its heart out this morning. It had a long and
multi faceted song. It made me happy just to listen to it's trills.
Birds make me happy and the birds in my backyard make me even happier. I have a nesting pair of cardinals and a nesting pair of wood thrushes in the backyard this year. They are out every morning and evening gathering bugs for their offspring. Gather away, bird friends, gather away.
