While female Cardinals don't hold the same visual value to most as the male Cardinal, the subtle colors and bright red beak are sure to stand out in the upcoming winter months. Keep up the informative posts, Nancy!

I just happened upon your blog and had to chime in that female cardinals are a favorite of mine too. The coral color of their beak is so elegant! Thanks for sharing!


Simply beautiful - the image and the poetry you create to accompany the image...

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
