Over the weekend, we received several inches of fresh snow. Since our covered front porch looked like Grand Central Station with birds everywhere, I set my portable blind up and photographed some of the birds coming to our feeders. Today’s post features a few images of my Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) friends:
At one point, I counted nearly 30 cardinals on our front porch, all at the same moment … and there were more sitting in the trees surrounding the front of the house! More bird species will be featured in upcoming posts.
