Snow bird Posted on January 5, 2014 by Huffygirl What could be prettier than a fat red cardinal against a back drop of fluffy white snow? I just hope Mr. Cardinal shows up later today when we get another eight inches of the pretty white stuff. © Huffygirl 2014 AdvertisementShare this:EmailPrintRedditTwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

I hope all your little birds cope through the bad winter over there!
I hope so too. Every time I see how much I am spending on bird seed, I think of cutting back. But then I see all my sweet birds out there and relent. I especially hate to see the cardinals come looking for food and not finding any.
Gorgeous pics, Donna. Keep warm. 🙂
Thanks. Won’t be easy for the next couple days – wind chills expected below zero and we have a foot of snow now – and more on the way! But, we’re experienced Michiganders so we’ll be all right.
Bah, humbug! Snow is just the ghost of Christmas past. Shoveling snow whilst chained to your shovel (or snowblower) is penance for admiring snow in other lifetimes.

Sounds like you are ready for a warm weather vacation Sandra, or at least for someone else to do the shoveling. Our 70+year old neighbor lady finally gave it up for the first time since we’ve known her, and hired someone to clear her snow this year.
Thanks. I wish I still had the painting Daddy did of the cardinals, but I think we gave it away. 😦
My husband recently put out a bird feeder in the yard and for the first time we have both cardinals and blue jays hanging out together in the yard. It’s a colorful crew!
Sounds nice Lisa. We don’t get blue Jays for some reason – I think our feeders are smaller and it’s hard for them to get at the seed.
