Harbinger Of Spring?
A family of cardinals has been around my backyard all winter long! I think a neighbor has a feeder setup so they don't migrate South. I live in South Boston.
Oh, yes, that is a cardinal... a male cardinal! Isn't he beautiful! Just love the sight of these feathered-friends against a backdrop of snow. We don't have cardinals here, and I miss the sight of familiar birds back home there. Of course, the birds here are special too. ;o) Hope you're having a great weekend, Anali... enjoy the view from you window! ((HUGS))
anonymous - That's great that you have a whole family around. What a pretty sight that must be!And now that I think of it, I probably have seen them in the winter. Oh well. I guess I'm grasping at straws for signs of Spring!tracy - Thanks for more insight! I wasn't even thinking about the gender, but the male birds usually do have the prettiest plumage. I'm looking for him again. Maybe he has a family.
Sadly, you're definitely grasping at straws of Spring. Cardinals don't migrate south. They hang out here all winter. If you find a Robin, now THAT would be a good sign of Spring. but then again, with global warming, they probably don't need to leave anymore. (FWIW, here's a site about cardinals http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/birds/cardinal/)
anonymous - I'll be on the lookout for Robins! Thanks for the link. I didn't realize that they have so many songs!
